Mission

The mission of the Language Program is to provide a high quality of instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL) to non-native speakers who wish to improve their English proficiency in order to attend an American college or university, or who wish to develop sufficient English skills to be ready to serve the Lord and world as competent leaders.

Academic Goal

We utilize a holistic approach while teaching grammar, listening, speaking, writing, and reading in an immersion type environment. Our purpose is to help international students to assimilate into the American way of life while building their self-confidence in a gradual and methodic manner. At the Language Program, we believe it is our responsibility to foster a positive cultural experience for all students while making them more competitive in a multi-cultural and international marketplace.
