English as a Second Language (ESL)
Five Levels of English Courses
The Academic English Studies program, Lewis & Clark’s intensive English program, offers full-time (18-20 hours per week) instruction for low-intermediate through advanced English language students. Up to 24 undergraduate elective credits may be applied toward a Bachelor of Arts degree at Lewis & Clark.
English as a Second Language (ESL) courses closely approximate undergraduate courses in teaching style, content, and expectations. The curriculum is designed to assist students in the development of essential language skills, appropriate learning strategies, and the cross-cultural awareness and sensitivities considered necessary for successful completion of their undergraduate or graduate studies.
The AES program offers courses during both semesters of the academic year; an intensive summer session is also scheduled.
