ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE PROGRAM (ESL)

Purpose

The mission of the English as a Second Language program at Midwest University is to give students an opportunity to develop and improve English proficiency. The multi-level offerings will attempt to enhance student abilities in relaxed, formal, cultural and academic venues.

Objectives

Students will be able to:

1. Exhibit a broad base of knowledge of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar skills in English.
2. To successfully adapt to the American culture by applying knowledge gained in the classroom.
3. Demonstrate the ability to communicate with other students and faculty on increasingly sophisticated levels.

Students may achieve twelve (12) transcript notation credits each semester, which do not affect either the GPA or the total number of credits needed to complete their academic studies.
