The Parkland Learning Advantage
Parkland Intensive ESL classes are small, averaging only 12 to 14 students. Each class typically has students from a variety of countries. Our teachers will help identify skills needing improvement, develop a learning program, chart progress in specific skill areas, and prepare for successful interaction in an American college environment. Students will have extensive free access to computer labs and can learn academic computer skills at each level. Electives are also available in TOEFL preparation, pronunciation, and conversation practice. Find the elective courses by the ESL prefix in the Course Listing
