English as a Second Language (ESL)

 esl3 esl-2 
Welcome to the English as a Second Language (ESL) Department at Camden County College! The ESL Department at Camden County College provides English language training to both United States residents who are non-native speakers of English and students from all over the world. The ESL Department has highly qualified and trained faculty and staff, outcome-oriented curricula, and state-of-the-art instructional learning resources and facilities.

Many of the ESL students at Camden County College are non-native speakers of English that live locally in Camden County and the surrounding Philadelphia area.  Also, there are many “international students” who study at Camden County College on student (F-1) visas.  In addition, some students in the ESL Department have other visa statuses. 


Come and speak to one of our ESL advisors, who would be happy to assist you.
