Welcome, English language learners! In addition to its many courses for students proficient in English, MCC's English department also offers English classes for students whose primary language is other than English.
After taking the CELSA language placement test, students are advised about appropriate classes and program options. MCC's regular ESL program offers a variety of semester long (16-week) ESL classes at five different language levels for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students as well as an Intensive English program (8-week sessions) which meets five days a week.
This test (CELSA) is paper and pencil and is used for course placement into the English as a Second Language program for both English and Reading. This test takes 45 minutes to complete and consists of 75 multiple choice questions. The test is written only and does not include a listening or spoken portion. The scores and recommended course placement are given to the student immediately upon test completion.
