ELS Sequence

The English Language Studies Program consists of four levels of language proficiency:
Intermediate I / Intermediate 2 / Advanced 1 / Advanced 2.

 
Each level consists of skills-based courses in reading, speaking, and writing. The entering
student must take a placement test to determine level of competence in each skill area.

 
The chart below shows ELS courses by skill level.

 
In addition  to the required core courses, students are encouraged to enroll  in an elective in Speaking and Pronunciation (ENP 030) at  the intermediate levels to provide them with more practice in speaking the English language.
