Eng­lish as a Sec­ond Lan­guage (ESL) class­es pro­vide basic through advanced instruc­tion in the speak­ing, read­ing, writ­ing, gram­mar and syn­tax of Eng­lish for speak­ers of oth­er lan­guages.

The Library pro­vides print and audio­vi­su­al mate­ri­als for ESL stu­dents and tutors; com­put­ers with links to learn­ing resources; and space for tutor­ing, class­es and meetings.

We also lend test prepa­ra­tion books for the TOE­FL. The Test of Eng­lish as a For­eign Lan­guage (TOE­FL) mea­sures the abil­i­ty of non-native speak­ers of Eng­lish to use and under­stand North Amer­i­can Eng­lish as it is used in col­lege and uni­ver­si­ty set­tings. More infor­ma­tion is avail­able at the Offi­cial TOE­FL Web­site: toe​flgo​any​where​.org
