English as an Additional Language

 

               

 

The English as an Additional Language Program at Vincennes University is an intensive English language acquisition program. Classes are small, between 10 to 20 students. Students focus on developing listening, speaking, reading, and writing comprehension. In addition, students practice pronunciation and expand their vocabulary. The classes are eight weeks long. Full-time students take two classes per semester and are in class 20 to 25 hours per week. The smaller class size allows the students the opportunity to receive individual attention, weekly feedback, and participate in meaningful class activities. The classes prepare the students for college level work and the work world.

Vincennes University was one of the first two-year colleges in the nation to offer an ESL program. With more than thirty years of experience, we have a proven success record of teaching English to international and resident students. Students are placed in ESL classes based on their proficiency. Vincennes University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
