ESL Program Begins September 4th, 2013!

Version 1

    The MSOE Intensive Academic ESL program prepares conditionally admitted international students whose native language is not English for academic success in the Milwaukee School of Engineering.  Our classes are held at the historic German~English Academy Building located on 1020 N. Broadway right in the heart of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

    Coursework provides a strong framework to accelerate and support student’s mastery of academic content and language skills in all four-language areas. The integrated program’s strategic based approach develops effective academic listening, fluent and accurate academic reading and writing, note taking, critical thinking, and test-taking skills with solid academic vocabulary integration throughout all content areas.  Emphasis is given to the use of higher level thinking skills within cross-curricular units based on authentic college level academic textbooks.


      Students enrolled in this program will study academic reading and writing, academic listening and speaking, contextualized intensive grammar, intensive composition, academic and professional conversational strategies, and professional vocabulary targeting main academic disciplines offered in MSOE such as engineering, business and nursing.  Among other skills, students will also learn how to write college level academic research papers and  how to deliver effective academic and professional presentations. Attention is paid to the student’s cultural awareness in the academic environment.
