3 Week English (ESL) Program

Students who sign up for the 3 Week English as a Second Language Program will receive 10 weekly hours of instruction on campus. A major advantage of our ESL program is that all students are immersed in an English speaking environment and can immediately practice what they have learned in class.

The 10 hours per week program includes 6 hours of classes covering grammar, pronunciation, and writing skills. The other 4 hours will focus on conversation skills and usable vocabulary through a series of interest based and cultural seminars. Students will receive exercises, projects, and handouts for future review and continuous practice of the covered material.
