Our Mission

The mission of the Department of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL/ESL) at Lone Star College-University Park is to offer English classes that prepare students for success in college-level courses, the global workplace, and their daily lives.

  • The program at LSC-University Park offers classes in grammar, writing, reading & vocabulary, oral communication, and pronunciation.
  • Classes are small, interactive, and taught by highly qualified instructors.
  • Class placement is determined by the ACCUPLACER ESL test, which can be taken in the assessment center on campus at LSC-University Park.
  • Upon successful completion of the program, students may register for college credit classes. 
  • ESOL classes are also designed for students who want to find a better job and improve their day-to-day communication skills.
  • LSC-University Park is an innovative campus, where ESOL learners have multiple opportunities to get engaged in cultural and educational events and be a part of the community.
