Credit English as a Second Language Department


Welcome to Los Angeles Valley College Credit ESL Program.  Our aim is to help students from diverse language and cultural backgrounds to achieve their academic and career goals by giving a solid foundation in academic English skills.  Our mission is to instill the necessary skills and knowledge that will enable students to be successful in their future endeavors.  We offer a friendly classroom atmosphere with classes taught by professional, caring and enthusiastic faculty.

The Credit ESL Program offers courses designed for students whose primary language is not English, and are studying at LAVC in order to earn a degree or professional certificate, or transfer to another college or university to get a degree or professional certificate. These courses prepare non-native speakers with classes in grammar and writing, reading and vocabulary, and listening and speaking skills from the intermediate to the advanced levels.  

We look forward to assisting you. Please stop by our office or contact us via email or telephone.
