Why take ESL classes at Fullerton College?

Yoshiki Harada

ESL classes at Fullerton College allowed me to improve my English skills so much better. I was in a language school before transferring here, but they do not offer the writing class or academic conversation class in the school. ESL classes here gave me so many opportunities to learn English effectively and efficiently.

Julieta Cortes

I’m taking three classes, and they have helped me a lot in different ways. I’ve improved my grammar, speaking, and vocabulary. I like the professors. They do a great job. Everyone has different activities to encourage us to do better. It was my best decision to come to Fullerton College.

Yen Luong

I think ESL classes are good resources for foreign students because it helps them understand the beauty of English, and the students gain experiences on doing research for class essays. Moreover, students have an opportunity to read some interesting articles.

Zhiwei Xu

There are a lot of classmates who come from different countries in class, and we talk to each other and learn together. In this class, not only did I learn English, but I also made friends.

Claudia Cora

I loved everything about the ESL classes at Fullerton College. I learned a lot from my professor, and I also feel the Writing Center helps a lot.
