The Center for English as a Second Language is happy to announce that we will be returning to in-person classes in the near future! We will continue offering online classes, dependent on student demand.
By enrolling in any of our CESL classes, you will have access to live, instantaneous feedback on all your English language questions by certified ESL professionals with master's degrees or higher in the field. The course content, homework, feedback and instruction are the same in both our in-person and online classes. Successfully completing CESL's OU Track in either modality will enable academically admissible candidates to enroll in the University of Oklahoma!
Application deadlines for online classes are flexible, but for in-person classes, you must apply by the deadline to have enough time to obtain your F-1 visa.
Our traditional, in-person classes meet 20 hours per week, from 9-3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Our synchronous, online classes follow the same schedule and curriculum as our in person classes.
The three-hour Core Course at CEFR levels A1-B2 covers the integrated skills of Listening/Speaking, Reading and Grammar/Writing. Classes are held 9:00-11:50 a.m. CDT, Monday-Thursday.
Our two-hour seminar classes focus on test preparation (IELTS and TOEFL iBT) and special topics from 1:00-2:50 p.m. CDT, Monday-Thursday.
Apply for Fall 2020 Online or Spring 2021 Online or In-Person
Admission to the University of Oklahoma is NOT required to enroll with CESL. We look forward to meeting you in class!
