Welcome to the home page for the ESL Department at Victor Valley College!

English as a Second Language (ESL) is the study of English designed for non-native speakers of English. As the High Desert has become very diverse both culturally and linguistically, the need for language and cultural orientation has grown.  Although not recognized as a separate major, ESL is a necessary component for success in any field for the non-native student.  Non-native speakers of English need to develop academic language skills necessary to accomplish their educational goals.  The ESL Department at VVC seeks to help these students develop these skills.
