English as a Second Language (ESL) Classes

If English is not your native language, we can help!

Our English as a Second Language (ESL) program helps non-native speakers of English improve their English proficiency through integrated skills courses including:

  • Speaking
  • Listening comprehension
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Grammar

Some students may need to successfully complete ESL courses to continue with their degree program at Cincinnati State.


Note: Due to COVID-19 the following courses will not be offered during the Spring 2021 Semester.

  • Free Beginning Level and Intermediate Level ESL
  • ESL Conversation Group
