ESL Program

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

The Peralta Colleges offer ESOL classes for students who are unable to demonstrate that they have not met the TOEFL, IELTS, iTEP or other language test score results to be admitted to Associate level classes.

Our ESOL program is offered by each of our colleges (and not by a separate language schools or institution) and lead directly to our AA classes.
