English as a Second Language

The English as a Second Language (ESL) program at Brigham Young University is under the direction of the Department of Linguistics and the Division of Continuing Education. The program is designed to develop fluency in English. There is no lower limit in English proficiency for admission. Multiple levels of English are provided for international students. They range from beginning to advanced. Attention is given to listening comprehension, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, and U. S. culture. The principal objective is to develop fluent, oral communication. Although students in this intensive program are not regularly-matriculated university students, they nevertheless have access to university library facilities, as well as to the English Language Center (ELC) computer and resource centers.
