ESL Fall Courses

The Language Teaching Center's English as a Second Language program is this fall offering Oral Communication: Listening and Speaking (intermediate and advanced) and Academic and Professional Writing (intermediate and advanced). Classes are open to faculty, staff and students. Placement tests will be given on the first night of class.

Oral Communication classes, which meet Monday and Wednesday evenings, focus on pronunciation and conversational practice. Pronunciation assessments and accent reduction instruction help students refine their language skills. Practice includes developing oral presentations, giving and following directions, and narrating and giving explanations.

Academic and Professional Writing classes meet Tuesday evenings. Through readings, written exercises and discussion of a variety of texts, students strengthen their reading skills and expand their vocabularies. Writing skills are targeted by a variety of assignments that emphasize effective sentence formation, paragraph development and essay structure.

The Language Laboratory is available for both courses.

Tuition is $795 per course, and space is limited. JHU employees and their spouses are eligible for tuition remission through their Benefits Office.

To download a registration/application form, go to www.jhu.edu/ltc/esl.
