English as a Second Language

Programs for adult English language learners who wish to improve their oral and written communication skills for their personal, professional, and academic goals.

If you have a student visa (F, J) or other visitor visa (B, C, D, M, P, or Q), please contact our International Programs Office instead of ESL.

Take a placement test

No matter your current English ability, you can take English as a Second Language classes at Lane Community College!

All new students need to take a placement test to determine the best level for you to begin. This test will let us know your ability in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. If you need any assistance, contact the ESL office at (541) 463-5253 or email at eslstudentservices@lanecc.edu.
