English as a Second Language (ESL) Learning

Individuals whose native language is not English may wish to bring an interpreter to an Information Meeting. Those who plan to enroll for classes at De Anza must take the ESL placement test in order to assess their English language skills.  Check with the Assessment Center in the Registration & Student Services Building.  This is necessary to determine appropriate class enrollment. Accommodations are available for placement testing for ESL students with disabilities.

Learning disability assessment and courses offered by the DSPS Division are conducted in English. ESL students with disabilities who are otherwise qualified for De Anza enrollment and disability-related services will be assisted to obtain appropriate classroom accommodations.

To learn more, read about Placement Test Accommodations in Section 2 under General Accommodations.
