Youth Program

Valencia College provides an English as a Second Language (ESL) program for youth ages 12 through 15. This four level program is designed to increase the participant's proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing/grammar. Each level contains two 36-hour courses that can be taken in any order as each course covers new vocabulary and grammar. In these courses, participants will be immersed in a challenging yet fun environment while they gain a greater understanding of the English language and the American culture.
