More Information


The Northampton Community College English Instruction program, which we call our English As A Second Language (ESL) program, teaches English to international students and to students who need to brush up on their English Language skills. The program has an excellent reputation for high quality English instruction and students benefit from the personalized instruction and opportunity to work one-on-one with ESL faculty and staff members.

Students take a placement test to determine their level of English and the intensity of the instruction they will need. Please click on the English As A Second Language link to the right to learn more about the various services offered through our ESL program.
