We are happy that you are considering Kansas City Kansas Community College for English language instruction.

We are proud of the excellence our college shows in its students, faculty and staff, facilities, and programs. The ESOL instructors at KCKCC are committed to helping all students improve their English language skills and meet their personal goals, whatever they may be.

ESOL classes are designed primarily for students who need to improve their English skills for studying at a college or university. Many of our students will begin academic study at KCKCC when they have fulfilled the ESOL requirement. Students in advanced-level ESOL classes may also take college classes during the same semester. Other students are attending ESOL classes to strengthen their English skills for personal or professional reasons.

Kansas City Kansas Community College values all of its students. You will find the college large enough to provide you with numerous activities and opportunities throughout the year, but small enough to be friendly, safe, and comfortable.Liz Holloway, Elsje Smit
