ESL at North Central College
Three English as a Second Language (ESL) Opportunities:
1. English Language Institute: North Central College's English Language Institute (ELI) is a full-time, noncredit, intensive English program. The Institute is designed to prepare international students for admission to a U.S. college or university by developing academic, professional and social English language skills.
2. Academic ESL Classes: These academic year classes are offered for those students who are already enrolled in a full-time program of study at North Central College and are looking for some language support. Community members with visa statuses that allow them to study part-time may also enroll in these courses.
3. Community Education ESL: These classes meet once per week and focus on developing basic communication skills for daily life.
