Compare Course Studies in ESL in North America 2017/2018

Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.

ESL is short for English as a Second Language, and it refers to a curriculum that teaches English to people whose native language is not English. Students learn how to read, speak, write and comprehend the English language.

Open Hearts Language Academy

OHLA uses a skills-based curriculum, focused specifically on developing necessary linguistic skills in five major areas: Reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar. We, at OHLA, know that the best way to develop these skills is to do it in a “natural” way, the same way we all learned our native languages. We believe that languages are not meant to be memorized, but rather to be used and practiced on a daily basis, in order to maintain continuity and master it in a lesser amount of time. [+]

General ESL Program OHLA uses a skills-based curriculum, focused specifically on developing necessary linguistic skills in five major areas: Reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar. We, at OHLA, know that the best way to develop these skills is to do it in a “natural” way, the same way we all learned our native languages. We believe that languages are not meant to be memorized, but rather to be used and practiced on a daily basis, in order to maintain continuity and master it in a lesser amount of time. To learn and master the English language, it is necessary not to view it as a step-by-step approach, but rather as a continuous and progressive process, where international students are continuously challenged accordingly as they go through their levels of language study. Languages are continuously learned and improved upon, the same way in which we are always learning and improving our native languages. The main reason for this is that languages are always evolving; just like everything else we see or experience in life. Click here to see our Program Proficiency Scale A proficiency scale is a set of descriptions of the language skills that you can expect to attain during your time at OHLA. Each level in the scale describes a stage in your development of competence. Entry Points Each level lasts 12 weeks and it is sub-divided in six 2-week-units called “blocks”. Students may commence their language studies at the beginning of any two-week block. For instance, if a... [-]
