English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

For over 20 years, Richland's ESOL Department has been helping Dallas' foreign-born residents learn English and pursue their academic and professional dreams. The department currently serves over 1,300 students each semester, making it one of the largest in the country.




Prospective students receive free testing and advising in the College's Multicultural Center. After individual counseling, they register in one of three programs, each designed to meet students' varying needs:

 
American English and Culture Institute meets the special requirements of F-1 visa students preparing to study in American colleges in an intensive 8-week English program.
English for Academic Purposes provides Individual skills approach offering flexible scheduling for busy students.
ESOL Intensive Learning Communities provide a fast-paced, integrated skills approach to language learning in a community of learners.
ESOL Online blends language lessons and technology for interactive learning from any computer with an internet connection. 100% and partially online sections available.
 

Students with little knowledge of English can begin their studies in non-credit courses, offered through Continuing Education, and transition seamlessly into one of the credit programs.

Small, learner-centered classes, experienced faculty, a staff dedicated to student success, and a special computer lab all add to the Richland ESOL experience.


NOTE to English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Students

If you have not passed reading and writing sections of TSI by the time you reach Level 4 ESOL, you will be required to take ESOL 0034 Academic Listening/Speaking for College and Career Success, instead of HDEV 0092 which is required for all non-ESOL students.

This advanced ESOL course will develop academic speaking skills through a focus on academic and career planning. Students will participate in group projects and presentations which are based on career assessment, information gathering, and networking experiences. The goal is to strengthen critical thinking skills and readiness for college study and decision-making.
