With our discussion of the CSI ESL Academy, we highlighted their unique multi-campus structure. CSI is not alone in this approach, however –in fact, our next subject, ELS Language Centers, has more than 60 locations around the world. As a result, students can pursue their English-language education not only in the United States but also in Canada, Australia, and more.
Who should attend ELS Language Centers?
With over fifty years of English-education experience to call upon, ELS Language Centers offer something for everyone. Its propriety curriculum offers 12 different levels of instruction that enable students from the “Beginner” to “Master” level to polish their English proficiency skills. Moreover, with General, Academic, Junior, Executive, and Test Preparation programs to choose from, there is something for everyone at ELS.
Where is the school located and where is housing?
As noted above, there are more than 60 ELS Language Centers around the world. Many are located on or near university campuses and, as part of the collegiate experience, in some cases housing in residence halls and homestays can be arranged. Interested students should include all housing inquiries with their initial applications as availability is limited.
When are classes held?
Specific schedules vary by location and area of study. From intensive programs that run 30 hours a week to semi-intensive 20 hour sessions, the scheduling needs of most students can be easily accommodated. Most classes run Monday to Friday. At the same time, though many programs have monthly start dates a few are summer-only opportunities.
Finally, what makes the ELS Language Centers unique?
With so many locations, study options, and start dates available, ELS represents one of the premier language immersion opportunities on the market. Its experience has enabled them not only to offer a wide breadth and depth of services, however – it has also enabled them to develop one-of-a-kind curricula, textbooks, and language-learning software. With these resources – and ELS Language Centers themselves at your disposal – the sky’s the limit when it comes to English immersion!
