ESL Classes at TAMIU This Summer

ESL Classes Taught at TAMIU this Summer

Registration is underway for Texas A&M International University International Language Institute's (ILI) intensive English as a second language (ESL) courses. Classes will be held at the University Monday - Thursday from 8:30 a.m. - 1:15 p.m., June 13 - Aug. 5, 2005. Registration deadline is June 10.

This intensive course is designed for non-native English speakers who seek to advance professionally or academically or just want to improve their English skills.

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 $20. Tuition for the courses varies according to placement.

ILI also offers two conversational English courses in the evenings on Mondays and Wednesdays and Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 7:30 - 9:45 p.m.
