English as a Second Language (ESL)
Cuesta’s ESL program provides language development opportunities for students of all English language proficiency levels in our community. We help students improve their English language skills so that they may achieve their personal, academic, and professional goals as well as participate more effectively in their communities.
We offer a range of courses from basic literacy to advanced, as well as conversation and grammar classes. ALL noncredit courses are FREE for students, and ALL sites offer FREE childcare.
ESL classes are held in at the South County Center in Arroyo Grande, the main campus
in San Luis Obispo, the North County Center in Paso Robles, and a number of community
sites across the county.
