The ESL Program at College of Marin

For over thirty years, College of Marin has been addressing the needs of English learners through its high quality English as a Second Language (ESL) Programs. Through free noncredit ESL classes, credit ESL classes and a fee-based Intensive English Program, the College of Marin has helped countless Marin residents and international students from over 50 countries fulfill their educational, career and personal goals. To find the best class level, we assess your English skills before you enter any of these programs.
