Study English while still having the freedom to explore your surroundings. The ELS Semi-Intensive English program helps strengthen your English communication skills in the classroom, then allows you time to absorb your surroundings and practice your new skills. Your morning classes will focus on the building blocks of English proficiency: Structure and Speaking Practice or Language Studies, Vocabulary Enrichment, and a lesson in the Language Technology Center. You will have the opportunity to explore the local area in the afternoons.
ELS offers 12 levels of instruction to accommodate students of all abilities. All ELS programs offer placement testing to help determine your level of proficiency and place you in the level that is the best fit for you.
You will learn the basics and foundations of the English language in the lower levels. As you progress through the levels, you will find more and more complexity in your courses.
At the end of each three-month session, students who meet the requirements of their level will move up to the next level.
As you move through the levels, you will gain new opportunities through more challenging courses and through higher education options.
