English for Speakers of Other Languages

Northeast Iowa Community College English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes are tuition-free for adults. Our instructors work closely with students to improve reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to help them transition to employment, career training or college study. 

Students complete a pre-assessment to determine the class level - beginner to advanced - that best fits their needs. Regular class sessions are held online and students have the option to attend live or access recorded sessions to learn on their own time. 

Instructors want to see you succeed and are available for face-to-face, phone or online meetings by appointment.
