If you're an international student and you're thinking about seeking education in the United States or other English speaking countries, you may want to enroll in an intensive ESL course. Rather than typical English courses, which involve reading great works of literature, students who take ESL classes learn the basics of the English language.
Typical ESL classes focus on writing and reading English, and also pay close attention to grammar, speaking and listening to the English language. Many colleges and universities throughout the United States require international students to provide proof of ESL coursework upon admission. Many international students elect to continue their English education here in the United States. Many colleges offer traditional reading comprehension courses to international students. These courses allow students to further improve their written and verbal English skills. If English is not your native tongue, you can find a number of institutions to teach you the basics and beyond.
You don't have to be an international student to take ESL courses. Many professionals seek to learn the basics of the English language to enhance their earning potentials. People who work in international trade, communications, and technology fields often take ESL classes to reduce communication breakdowns between international partners. Some people take ESL classes and then go on to teach English to other students. This is a great way to give back to your community, and is also a great career choice, as the need for teachers is always growing.
