ESL English as a Second Language: Home

Resources for learning English as a second language.

Is the ESL program at Norco College for you?

If you answer yes to one or more of these questions, then the ESL test is probably the right choice for you. 

  • Did you graduate from high school in another country?
  • If you graduated from an American high school, did you take ESL there?
  • Were you born and raised in another country?
  • Do you mostly speak a language other than English at home?

The ESL test, also known as the Proficiency Test in English as a Second Language (PTESL), is designed for non-native English speakers.  The test will measure your knowledge of the English language and readiness to take college-level classes.
