ESL Learning Lab
MiraCosta College offers credit and noncredit ESL classes.
The noncredit ESL program offers seven levels of ESL instruction. Students take a CASAS placement test during registration and are placed in one of the seven levels based on their listening and reading skills. The program levels chart provides recommended entry level CASAS scores and descriptions for the seven levels of ESL instruction.
