English as a Second Language (ESL)
English as a second language programs typically focus their courses on four areas – speaking, listening, reading and writing – to give students a well-rounded understanding of the English language. Classes are heavily group-based, and students are encouraged to interact with each other through presentations, dialogue components and language lab work. Students will also have access to tutoring services and academic counselling to help them transition into a college program after achieving their English program credential.
Many Ontario college ESL programs tier their curriculum, meaning students will be assessed before their program begins to determine their starting point in the program, as well as the duration. Assessments are normally based on an in-house test or through international tests such as TOEFL or IELTS.
General English as a Second Language Program Requirements:
Aside from assessment, requirements for Ontario College English as a Second Language programs include an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent. Some programs are more advanced than others and may require completion of an introductory or beginner’s English program for admittance.
