Upon enrollment, students are given a short English assessment test to determine their level of English proficiency. The test results are used to place students in the appropriate ESL classes. Students are then tested using the standardized test for ESL students, CASAS, three times a semester to assess progress in order to move to the next level.
This course offers individualized instruction to prepare for the US Citizenship Test and interview. For more information and an appointment call: 650-550-7910.
