About The University of Texas at Austin - ESL Services

UT Austin is one of the top public universities in the US, and is currently ranked one of the top 30 universities in the world. Our university is known for having top 20 programs in business, education, engineering, law, and pharmacy. UT Austin is ranked number one in accounting and Latin American History.

ESL Services has been offering high quality English training services since 1965. There are two unique programs, the English Language Program (ELP) and Academic English Program (AEP). ELP is appropriate for students who are preparing for undergraduate study in the US, as well as for anyone who wants to improve their English for personal or professional reasons. AEP is designed for individuals seeking admission to a master’s or Ph.D. program in the US, or those who already have a bachelor’s degree.

All of ESL Services' current instructors have graduate degrees or their equivalent, speak at least one foreign language and have taught, traveled, or lived outside the US. Every instructor has experience working in International Education, with many boasting more than 20 years of experience.

Outside of class students learn about US and Texan culture, making friends through our weekly social events, English practice time, and multi-lingual conversation groups, while exploring the beautiful city of Austin.

We offer two programs for English teacher training: the CELTA certificate and customized programs.
The CELTA is the most widely recognized TESL/TEFL certificate in the world, administered through Cambridge University. It is an initial certificate, typically for people with their BAs but also for people with advanced degrees that are not English teaching degrees. The CELTA is highly regarded around the world because of its high standards and rigorous assessments. It is one of the few certificate programs that involve practice teaching.
We also offer customized teacher training programs for organized groups of 10 or more. These 4- to 6-week programs are designed to address the needs of TEFL teachers in primary, secondary, and university-level education in their home country context. In addition to coursework, our customized programs include classroom observations, volunteering, and local field trips.

studied General English

I have been a good time !

I recommend studying University of Texas at UT ESL. This language school helps student to get accustomed to living in a new culture. For example, as one of their program, it is called Friendship program that gives friends who are University of Texas students or workers in Austin to ESL student. On the other hands, ESL teachers are super kind and they make an effort for their students. I strongly make sure you would like this school.
