English as a Second Language (ESL)  - Camden County College

English as a Second Language (ESL) 

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.
