Welcome to The Intensive English Program


The Edmonds Community College Intensive English Program (ESL) teaches English to international students. Started in 1981, the program has an excellent reputation for high quality English language instruction.

Our program has five levels. When students arrive, they take a placement test to find the class level that is right for them.  Students who finish the Intensive English Program can take college or high school completion classes at Edmonds Community College.
