High Intermediate Level
This program is designed for students who have already acquired an intermediate ESL command. Its purpose is to provide students with opportunities to enlarge their vocabulary and manage more complex grammatical structures, as well as develop strategies for communication useful in more formal linguistic contexts which demand higher and more efficient language management. The program provides training in the four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The courses offered in this program have no assigned sequence; therefore, they can be taken in any order.

Prerequisite: ESL Intermediate.
