Short Term Programs

Short-term ESL Programs, Long-term Life Investments

Maybe you’re not quite ready to dive headfirst into a full-term ESL program? Or maybe your language-learning needs are laser-focused on one area of study because you’re looking to expand your career options? A smart, cost-effective, and often flexible option for you could be a short-term ESL program.

A major benefit of choosing a short-term program (generally 1 to 16 weeks long) is that you can dip your toe in the water to see if a particular program fits your needs. You also have the opportunity to gain the particular language skills you’re looking for without having to take a full schedule of courses you may have already mastered.

Fine-tuning your English skills in a short-term ESL program can fuel your career growth and expand your global reach and allow you to keep up the momentum with your professional and personal goals back home.
