English As A Second Language Program [ESL]
Many groups and individuals select our broad range of short term English As A Second Language [ESL] study programs. These specialized programs are tailored to match the needs of each group and are offered to all ages of participants throughout the year.
The focus of the English As A Second Language Program [ESL] program is to increase rates of English language acquisition with a particular emphasis on academic English skills. We believe that the curriculum and activities that are offered will increase the ability for ESL students to advance their understanding of English and be more successful at school, business and in their personal lives.
