Typically, there are three ESL levels for which a student can be placed based on their CUNY placement exam: ESL 07 (10 equated credits), ESL 09 (10 equated credits), and ESL 91 ( 8 equated credits)
ESL peer mentors are ESL students who have already been through at least one semester at Kingsborough Community College. They work closely with the ESL Student Affairs staff, English faculty members, and students. They are bright, energetic, and helpful students who want to help incoming freshmen with the adjustment process and work to provide support and assist with making connections at KCC. We typically have 6-8 peer mentors per semester and they represent many different countries and languages.
