Credit Courses in English as a Second Language

The Department of Education offers a sequence of two intensive 6-credit courses in ESL for academic purposes to non-native speakers of English who are accepted by Concordia University but who must upgrade their reading and writing skills.

Two 3-credit courses in ESL listening and speaking are also available for students whose mother tongue is not English and who would like to improve their oral communication skills.

If English is not your mother tongue and you wish to take a Credit ESL course, you are required to take a placement test.
