Course in English as a Second Language (ESL)

Campus Full time 12 - 96 weeks Open Enrollment USA Miami

OHLA uses a skills-based curriculum, focused specifically on developing necessary linguistic skills in five major areas: Reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar. We, at OHLA, know that the best way to develop these skills is to do it in a “natural” way, the same way we all learned our native languages. We believe that languages are not meant to be memorized, but rather to be used and practiced on a daily basis, in order to maintain continuity and master it in a lesser amount of time. [+]

OHLA uses a skills-based curriculum, focused specifically on developing necessary linguistic skills in five major areas: Reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar. We, at OHLA, know that the best way to develop these skills is to do it in a “natural” way, the same way we all learned our native languages. We believe that languages are not meant to be memorized, but rather to be used and practiced on a daily basis, in order to maintain continuity and master it in a lesser amount of time. To learn and master the English language, it is necessary not to view it as a step-by-step approach, but rather as a continuous and progressive process, where international students have continuously challenged accordingly as they go through their levels of language study. Languages are continuously learned and improved upon, the same way in which we are always learning and improving our native languages. The main reason for this is that languages are always evolving; just like everything else we see or experience in life.

Students may commence their language studies at the beginning of any two-week block. For instance, if a... [-]
