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 who have the instructor's recommendation.
  • All of the Support Workshops begin Week 4. Sign-up begins Week 3.
  • Sing up weekly via the LSC's Weekly Workshop & Tutoring Online Sign-up Sheet so that you won't miss any useful information and practice!
