ESL Support

저희는 국제학생들의 학업 정진과 영어 대화능력 향상, 그리고 미국의 문화와 생활에 대한 폭넓은 이해를 돕기 위해 항상 준비되어 있습니다.

영어 모국어가 아닌 모든 학생들은 학생 개개인의 영어 능력을 인정받거나 ESL 및 조건부입학 프로그램에 참가하여야 합니다. 학생들은 영어능력을 인정받기 위해 여러 방법을 사용할수 있습니다: 토플 IBT 80점 이상, CBT 197점 이상, 또는 PBT 525점 이상, 그리고 IELTS 6.0점 이상의 성적을 거뒀음을 증명하여 정규학생으로 입학할수 있습니다.

LeTourneau대학교는 보통 이상의 영어실력을 가진 학생들을 위하여 ESL 프로그램을 제공합니다. 학생들은 중급, 또는 고급 ESL로 클래스에서 12 학점을 이수할수 있습니다. ESL프로그램에 참가하는 모든 학생들은 모두 학업에 정진하여 LeTourneau의 정규과목을 수강할수 있어야 합니다.

We are dedicated to helping international students succeed in the classroom, improve their conversational English and gain a broad understanding of American culture and life. 

If English is not your first language, you must demonstrate English proficiency or enroll in the English as a Second Language (ESL) program for conditional admission to LeTourneau University. English proficiency can be demonstrated in a variety of ways:  a minimum TOEFL score of  80 on the Internet-based version, 197 on the computer-based, 525 on the paper-based, or a minimum of 6.0 on the IELTS meets the minimum proficiency requirement for full admission to the undergraduate program. 

LeTourneau University offers an ESL program for students already at an intermediate or advanced proficiency level in English.  Students may enroll for 12 hours per semester at either the intermediate or advanced level.   Students must enter the program with a working knowledge of English due to the fact that these classes are designed to prepare students for academic performance and degree completion at LeTourneau University.

*Please note that there is not a beginner level in the ESL program.*

The English for Speakers of Other Languages support (ESOL) courses taught by Dr. Ignacio Palacios  provide an overview of everyday English language and American society. Coursework focuses on both the technical side of English (idioms, structure, etc.) and speaking by incorporating presentations, classroom exercises, trips and one-on-one time with current LETU speakers.

Coursework may include:

ENGL 1004 College Writing
ESOL 0743 ESL for the Chosen Profession
ESOL 0813 ESL Oral Communication Skills
ESOL 0823 ESL Integrated Skills for Level 2:Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing
