English Language Studies (ELS) certificate program


The English Language Studies (ELS) department at UFV offers full-time and part-time classes in the English language. The program includes courses for speaking, listening, grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing as well as elective courses such as Business English and Pronunciation. Students who wish to take university-level courses may do so either by completing upper-level Bridge ESL or EAP courses or by taking both upper-level EAP courses and academic courses through the University Foundation program.
Levels:
Beginner
Students will improve their basic reading, writing, and speaking skills in an intensive course in classes that meet for three or more hours per day.
Intermediate
Students will improve their spoken and written English and increase their vocabulary. Students may want to take the phonics course or the pronunciation courses at this or the advanced level.
Advanced and bridge
Students will improve their reading and writing. They will develop a better knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. They will continue to improve their listening and speaking ability. These levels are a preparation for further academic study. Students at this level may be eligible for the University Foundation Program which allows them to take both ELS and university-level courses at the same time.
