Returning to in-person classes

RETURNING TO IN-PERSON CLASSES

Our new session will start on August 31 and classes will continue online. Unfortunately, Santa Clara County did not make any decision regarding the re-start of in-person classes for the category of schools like CalCC. We are still hopeful that we will be able to start in-person classes in the session that starts on October 5. We will keep you informed of any updates as soon as they happen.

On behalf of the faculty and staff at California College of Communications, we would like to welcome you to our English Language School. We look forward to helping you start your English language training and attaining your goals.

CalCC’s programs are designed to help non-native speakers of English master the conventions of academic English for both college and university level courses, the TOEFL exam, as well as their personal growth and development. By taking ESL courses at CalCC, students learn how to meet the high standards demanded by the academic community and professional workplace. Our alumni have transferred to various local universities and colleges such as: San Jose State, California State East Bay, San Francisco State universities, and Mission, De Anza, and West Valley colleges.

Our dedicated, knowledgeable and multi-lingual instructors believe that our education style and family-like atmosphere are incomparable.
