• The ESL/Bilingual Program at Hudson County Community College

  • One of Hudson County’s greatest assets is its extraordinary ethnic diversity, and the College reflects that diversity — more than one-third of HCCC students were born outside of the United States and have reported nearly 105 different countries as their places of birth! Since English may not be the first language for many of our students, the College offers an extensive program of English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. New students are placed in these courses according to the results of their scores on the Level of English Proficiency Test and a holistically scored writing sample.

    The ESL Program at Hudson County Community College provides six levels of instruction with courses in Writing, Grammar for Writing, Reading and Academic Discussion at each level.

    Computer and interactive language labs are important components of the HCCC ESL learning program, and students are encouraged to increase their learning by utilizing these labs outside of regular classroom hours.

    Bilingual instruction is available in selected college-level courses for students enrolled in the HCCC ESL/Bilingual Program who demonstrate readiness for such courses.
