Based on modern teaching and learning practices, English Language Learning (ELL) is an intensive five-level, full-time program designed for international students who wish to improve their English language skills. If you're an international student, this program will help you to build on and improve your language skills for success in college, university or your career.
- ELL's five levels (Elementary, Beginner, Pre-intermediate, Intermediate, High Intermediate) run each semester.
- You'll be placed into one of the five levels depending on the results of a diagnostic placement test that will ensure you are in the correct language level.
- Each level consists of five "modules" with each "module" running for three weeks.
- You can start the program at the beginning of any module, depending on your date of arrival.
- You can join the program at three-week intervals, as there is continuous intake.
