Students are given the option of dividing the complete level into two half levels by taking the l/s/g component and then the reading and writing component. Each half level costs $538.

The small classes allow students to get personal attention during the eight-week immersion class. Students will also participate in an afternoon computer lab session.

All ESL students will be required to take a placement exam. The test includes listening, speaking, writing and multiple-choice questions. Fee for the placement test is $25. Tuition for the courses varies according to placement.
