ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE

International students whose first language is not English may be required to take an English placement test. Based on their scores, students will be placed in ENG 1000, ENG 1010, or the ESL program. International students who test out of ESL or whose first language is English must meet the B.A. core requirements in French or Spanish.

International students whose scores and performance in English (including their TOEFL scores) do not indicate sufficient mastery for enrollment in ENG 1000 or 1010 are required to take 12 hours of English as a Second Language courses during their first two semesters at Methodist University. The required courses are ESL 0960 and 0970 Writing Skills in the English Language, 6 s.h., and ESL 1210 and 1220 English Conversation, 6 s.h. Successful completion of these 12 semester hours meets the foreign language requirement in the degree programs at Methodist University. ESL 0910, 0920, 0960, and 0970 do not count toward graduation requirements or the awarding of honors. Upon completion of the ESL courses the student is required to enroll sequentially in ENG 1000, or ENG 1010, and ENG 1020 to meet the core requirements for any of the degree programs.
