English as a Second Language (ESL) Classes
Improve your English language skills with ESL classes.
Whether you're just learning English or have a pretty good understanding of the language, our two ESL programs can help.
Functional ESL (FESL): Learn how to read, write, speak and understand English in a class at your level
Academic English Language Program (AELP): For those who speak and understand English but want to improve their language skills to prepare for college-level classes
Morning and evening classes are available to fit your schedule. Most classes meet three days per week.
Classes are held on the main campus in Normal.
There is no cost to you. Classes are paid by state and federal grants.
Once you enroll, you'll get a Heartland student ID. With that ID, you can ride Connect Transit buses for free.
