Intensive English Language Program
The Department of English of the College of Arts and Sciences of the University of Louisville offers a full-time program of post-secondary English for international students who expect to enroll in an academic program at the University of Louisville or another American college or university.
Intensive English as a Second Language (IESL) Program accepts applications from students who have completed secondary school and whose academic records suggests readiness to undertake a rigorous course of language study. The course is intensive and applicants must have prior formal instruction in English. Applicants without previous formal instruction in English, but with several years' permanent residence in the United States, may qualify for admission.
We review applications and admit qualified students throughout the year for the fall and spring semesters. During the semester, students attend classes for 20 hours a week (Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.) in reading, vocabulary, writing, structure, and listening/speaking.
We also offer Communication in English (CIE), an evening class designed to help non-native speakers of English (high-intermediate to advanced proficiency) become more effective communicators. Classroom activities are designed to give participants the opportunity to improve conversational and written fluency and to practice the language needed in professional interactions such as discussions and presentations.
Applications for both the full-time IELP program and the evening class are accepted throughout the year for enrollment according to the IELP program schedule.
We are located in Strickler Hall, Room 207 (West Wing). To request an application or information about the application process, please contact Barbara Brown or Nancy Henry at 502-852-5901 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For additional information, please contact Anne Griner, IESL Program Director, at email@example.com.
