ESL Workshops and Textbooks



ESL Conversation Groups

The ESL department offers two weekly conversation groups during the fall and spring semesters. The conversation groups are free for students enrolled in credit and noncredit ESL courses. They are facilitated by Thomas Brown, who is one of our ESL tutors.

The ESL Conversation Groups will resume in Fall 2024.
More information will be posted in August 2024 regarding days, times, and locations.


Where can I purchase my textbooks?

The SMC campus bookstore stocks texts for all our classes, and you may purchase them either in-person or online. Please make sure you order the correct edition of your text. If you have questions, contact your instructor.

Shipping can take from 2-4 weeks, so order the books you'll need EARLY!

SMC online bookstore

For a minimal charge, the campus bookstore will mail your books to you OR hold them for 48-hour pick-up at the bookstore after you purchase them online.
