Welcome to the ESL Program

The ESL Department at College of the Canyons has been helping students in the Santa Clarita Valley and beyond learn and improve their English for over 20 years.

Many of our students have gone into professional careers like nursing, teaching, and business. Others have continued their studies here at COC and at 4-year universities. Others have reached their goal to speak better English, make friends, and enjoy their American lives.Of course, all have improved their English, made friends, broadened their cultural awareness, and enjoyed their lives here in the United States.

Whatever your level of English, we can help you progress and reach your goals. While this is the home of the CREDIT ESL Department, our sequence of courses over two programs will help you succeed.
