Delaware County Community College, Serving Delaware and Chester Counties

Evening and Saturday ESL Courses Available at Upper Darby and Marple

(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA • May 10, 2018)—Delaware County Community College is expanding its credit English as a Second Language (ESL) program to make courses more convenient for students. The highest-level ESL courses will be available on Saturdays at the Upper Darby Center (1570 Garrett Road, Upper Darby, PA) and in the evenings at the Marple Campus (901 S. Media Line Road, Media, PA) beginning this fall.

The College's credit ESL Program is designed to prepare students for academic coursework and includes courses in Grammar, Writing, Reading, and Listening and Speaking. Each subject has three levels—High-Beginning, Low-Intermediate and High-Intermediate—for a total of 12 courses. The higher-level courses will be offered on Saturdays at Upper Darby and evenings at Marple, while a full ESL day program is available at Marple.

If you’re interested in ESL credit courses, your first step is to apply to the College. Visit to start the process. Once you are accepted, you will receive information on scheduling a placement test and, after taking the test, you will meet with an advisor to learn more about the ESL program and select your courses. ESL students must complete (or test beyond) the High-Intermediate level before qualifying to take developmental English courses (ENG 050 and REA 050). Once all ESL and developmental courses are successfully completed, then you can begin an associate degree program.
