ESL Course Descriptions

Intensive English Program

These courses are designed to ensure students are prepared for the rigors of the college classroom experience. Some focus on specific skills while others combine several skills to imitate what is required to succeed in college-level courses or preparation for the TOEFL or IELTS exams. These same skills are also essential for developing professional career opportunities.

  • Grammar
  • Speaking & Listening
  • Writing
  • Reading & Vocabulary
  • Pronunciation
  • In addition, other courses such as American Culture and concept/practice classes may be offered.

Although many students strive only to meet TOEFL or IETLS exam requirements for admission to a university program, research shows that a strong background in ESL courses is even more effective for success because it allows the student to reinforce their skills in an English-language classroom setting.
