ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) is a program designed to help students use English as a tool for communication. After one year of instruction (approximately 525 hours), students will have developed at least a 1,000-word vocabulary and within the confines of the vocabulary, students will be able to:

  • Understand free conversation spoken at a normal speed, as well as rehearsed dialogues.
  • Read and understand material containing structures and vocabulary included in the syllabus.
  • Generate original conversation as a means of self-expression, as well as reproducing rehearsed dialogues with normal intonation.
  • Produce original written material in a guided situation using suggested words, structures, and/or topics.

In other words, students will demonstrate an intermediate level/ability in the four areas of language development: listening, writing, speaking, and reading after having completing this first year of instruction.
