Spring 18 ESL 251/253 Support Workshops

ESL 251 and 253 Support Workshops were designed by De Anza's ESL instructors to help ESL 251 and 253 students better understand class material.  

  • Each support workshop has multiple sequenced sessions. To benefit from a certain workshop, we suggest you attend all its sessions. 
  • Priority is given to ESL 251 and 253 students.
  • Sing up weekly using the LSC's Weekly Workshop & Tutoring Online Sign-Up.
