Intensive ESL

Welcome to Intensive English as a Second Language


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

When students arrive, they take a placement test to find their level of English, from Level 1 to Level 5. Students who finish the Intensive ESL Program can take Edmonds CC college or high school completion classes.
