A/B level ESL courses are five or eight weeks, depending on when it is offered and how many times per week the class meets.
$90 for 40 hours of English language instruction, only $2.25 per hour. Books are roughly $35 and can be purchased in the bookstore (N100).
Each level of ESL, 0-5, has both an A and B section. Think of it like Part I and Part II.;Students should always start with the A section and then continue to B. Material covered in B builds on what was learned in A; both A/B must be completed before a student can advance to the next level. Classes split into A and B provide greater flexibility to students for work or family schedule changes.
Noncredit ESL is for those who simply want to learn English. There is a focus on real-world application and improving language skills. No college credit is awarded for ESL courses. ESOL courses are more advanced and designed for those who wish to earn a college degree.
Students who successfully complete Level 5 ESL will earn a certificate of completion.
