Online ESL Course

The Center for English Language and Culture for International Students (CELCIS) offers students the option to take a Speaking and Listening course online/hyflex. Hyflex integrates online learners with the in-person classroom. The online English as a Second Language (ESL) course is offered in two semesters (Fall, Spring) and two sessions (Summer I, Summer II). In-person instruction is available for all skill areas and proficiency levels, while online instruction is available for Speaking and Listening only and for students with a higher level of language proficiency.
