Our campus is a friendly place – whatever the season.

Schedule

You may begin your ESL studies at any one of the six sessions throughout the year, and classes for each session will fall between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. (Central Standard Time). Of course, you’ll have plenty of opportunities outside of the classroom to practice your English skills, if you like.

You’ll be in classes 20 hours each week, for about four hours daily. We’ll place you in one of four levels of ESL instruction: beginning, elementary, intermediate and advanced.

Time for Completion
If you start in our beginning level, you should plan a minimum of 24 months to complete all levels. Should you begin at higher levels, you’ll likely take less time to receive your certification.

You will have classes five days a week between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The class schedule is:
