ESOL

What Is ESOL?

ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) test measures your ability to use and understand English at the university level. And it evaluates how well you combine your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills to perform academic and daily tasks.

ESOL courses are using TALL technology which  is the most effective and comprehensive technology in the world for learning English.   TALL provides corporations, governments, schools, and individuals with

the English language learning tools necessary to effectively function in the competitive business environment of the twenty-first century.

TALL employs blended learning, which combines software with virtual classroom or schoolroom-style

learning solutions to create a learning environment that is personally interactive, comprehensive and

affordable. The instructor may monitor each student’s progress from a control workstation. A reporting system maintains each student’s progress. There are four levels of instruction.

Basic English Level 1

Basic English Level 1 English is designed for novice learners, who may have no or little experience with the language. Level 1 introduces learners to vocabulary and tasks such as talking about routines to help them develop basic interpersonal communication skills. The vocabulary taught in level 1 comes from the 1,000 most frequent words in English, while the tasks correspond to those needed to move through the ACTFL novice proficiency level.

Intermediate English Level 3

Intermediate English Level 3 English is designed to raise learners at the intermediate mid level to

intermediate high proficiency. Tasks in Level 3 assist learners in developing basic interpersonal communication skills, and also include some more cognitively-challenging tasks, such as comparing the features of various objects. Learners are introduced to more words from the 2000 most frequent words in the English language.

Basic English Level 2

Basic English Level 2 English is designed to raise learner proficiency from high novice ability to intermediate low ability. Level 2 continues to assist learners in developing basic interpersonal communication skills. Learners are introduced to more of the 1,000 most frequent words in the English language. Tasks in Level 2 correspond to those needed to reach the intermediate low ACTFL proficiency level.

Intermediate English Level 4

Intermediate English Level 4 English is the bridge between basic inter-personal communication skills and the cognitive academic language proficiency that is required in academic and professional settings. Learners begin to build their vocabulary with words from the Academic Word List, a list of words used in a variety of academic and professional situations. Tasks at Level 4 reflect the increasing ability of learners to deal with more complex situations in both speaking and listening.
