JWU’s English as a Second Language (ESL) program provides international students with an opportunity to learn English for academic purposes through intensive English instruction and weekly enhancement activities. The ESL program is offered at the North Miami campus.
This intensive program focuses on English language for academic purposes — the language and communication skills critical to success in American university settings. Following an assessment, students are placed in courses at their specific level of English proficiency, targeting the skills to bring them to the next level of academic readiness.
All four domains of language — listening, speaking, reading, and writing — are addressed through engaging lessons and activities both inside and outside of the classroom. Instruction goes beyond lectures to promote interaction and prepare students for educational practices common to American higher education, including:
discussions group work presentations integrated technology (blended learning) project-based learning Weekly enrichment activities expose students to various facets of university life and prepare them for admission to undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
The North Miami Campus’ ESL program is facilitated by the Center for Academic Support.
