Intensive English Program
This program provides an opportunity for the students who live abroad to come to Auburn University at Montgomery to improve their English language proficiency. The program is also open to our local residents.
Intensive English Program Class Schedule
Open to individuals 16 years of age and older, Auburn Montgomery's ESL Program ensures that each student begins at the proper level and reaches their goal of fully learning the English language.
All ESL students first take a placement test to help us determine their current skill level and identify the coursework they need. Courses are taught at five proficiency levels: Beginning, Low Intermediate, Intermediate, High Intermediate, and Advanced. Once your proficiency is determined, an advisor will meet you to help you select your courses. ESL classes normally have eight to 14 students and are held throughout the year in eight-week terms. You may begin at the start of any eight-week term.
Students are placed in different levels based on their scores on the English Placement Test and their speaking abilities.
|Level One ||Beginning |
|Level Two ||Low Intermediate |
|Level Three ||Intermediate |
|Level Four ||High Intermediate |
|Level Five ||Advanced |
Students study the following courses for a minimum of 22 hours per week in an eight-week period. Depending on their proficiency levels, students may be placed into different levels of these courses.
