Welcome to the ESL Department

The English as Second Language (ESL) program at BHCC serves students on temporary visas, immigrants from all over the world, and native-born citizens whose first language is not English. Whether you have an advanced degree from your own country and need English proficiency to continue your profession or you are a new student, BHCC's ESL program will prepare you to participate more fully in your school, college, university and professional life. Information, testing and advising for English as Second Language students takes place in our Assessment Center, Room B118 on the Charlestown Campus.
