Program Overview

English as a Second Language (ESL)

Diverse group of students raising their hand in a class
Durham Tech offers courses in English as a Second Language (ESL) to non-native speakers at several locations in Durham and Orange counties. Courses are free, and students must be at least 18 years old to enroll. Course offerings, times, and locations sometimes change without prior notice. Courses fill up quickly, and space is limited.

All new ESL students must first take a placement exam. Please take the placement exam at the time and location where you will study. Seating for the scheduled testing dates is on a first-come, first-served basis. The testing process takes more than two hours. Please do not bring children. (Students who bring children to the testing sessions will be asked to leave.) Students should bring a photo ID, pen, and pencil; students must also provide a date of birth and a current local mailing address.

Durham Tech ofrece clases de inglés como segundo idioma (ESL por sus siglas en inglés) en los condados de Durham y Orange. Las clases son gratis, pero es necesario que el estudiante sea mayor de 18 años. Las clases, horarios, y los lugares donde se dictan las clases pueden cambiar sin previo aviso. Las clases de ESL se llenan rápido. Los cupos son limitados.

Es necesario que todos los estudiantes nuevos tomen un examen de admisión para entrar al programa. Venga al examen de admisión a la hora y al lugar donde usted tomara la clase. No se permiten hacer cambios de horarios. Los cupos son limitados, por lo tanto la inscripción es por orden de llegada. El examen va a durar más que dos horas. No se permite traer niños al examen. Si por alguna razón usted trae un niño, deberá retirarse. Los estudiantes deben traer las siguientes cosas una pluma y un lápiz, una identificación con foto, y su dirección y fecha de nacimiento.
