English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

We are here to help you improve your English language skills. We offer morning and evening ESOL classes in-person at our Gresham Campus and and Maywood Park Center. We also offer online classes in the morning and evening. A computer with a camera and internet connection is needed for our online classes.

Get Started

Call the Gresham Campus at 503-491-7333 or the Maywood Park Center at 503-491-6100 to schedule a reading test. Once you have taken the reading test, you will meet with a teacher and register for classes.

You will improve your reading, writing, listening, speaking, and technology skills in our classes. Classes are six to 12 hours each week for 10 to 11 weeks. Classes cost $30-$60. Class fee waivers are available to people who qualify.
