English as a Second Language

Oxford offers ESL instruction at the intermediate to advanced level. ESL students typically take two one-to-one English classes per day with weekly group instruction included as appropriate. The goals for the program are:
  • to build English communication skills through written and oral expression, reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, and knowledge of American idioms
  • to improve TOEFL scores
  • to develop cultural and social awareness

Math, history, and science courses are offered at a level suitable to the individual’s English proficiency.
