English as a Second Language (ESL)

Rockingham Community College offers English as a Second Language (ESL) classes as part of our mission to offer educational opportunities to all and to provide a well-educated workforce for local businesses. ESL is designed for adults whose native language is not English and seeks to improve their English speaking, reading, listening and writing skills. ESL classes are offered throughout the year and are held in various areas throughout the County.

ESL Civics Classes Available Now!  ESL Civics classes are offered to increase students’ ability to function comfortably in American society through learning good communication skills, understanding how our government and civil organizations work and to prepare for the responsibilities of citizenship.  

ESL classes are also available through distance education.  You can improve your English skills from home with Crossroads Café, a DVD-based correspondence course.   You are provided course materials on a weekly basis when you meet with your instructor, but you primarily complete the work at home.

Students may enter ESL classes at any time after an initial intake appointment.
