The Noncredit ESL classes below do not meet in a classroom. There are no Zoom meetings. The schedule is flexible. You study at your own time, when it is convenient for you.
Our classes in Summer 2021 will mostly be online. To join your class on Zoom and Canvas, you will need to get your RamID - your CCSF online identification. If you need help, see these links:
