Intensive English (ESL) Program
What is it?
It is an AAIEP (American Association of Intensive English Programs) certified program that brings students up to proficient levels in speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar to be prepared to enter American colleges and universities.
Primarily for students preparing to enter an American college or university and need to improve their academic English skills. The program is rigorous and requires daily attendance and active participation in all classes.
Students who wish to improve their general English skills for their career or personal reasons would benefit from this structured and challenging setting.
There are five levels and each level is about 10 weeks long during fall, winter, and spring quarters. Summer is only 7 weeks long, but the number of instructional hours is the same as other quarters.
