Our Program

The Berkeley campus and San Francisco Bay Area community offer a stimulating environment for students interested in improving their English. Known for its academic excellence, creativity, and innovative thinking, Berkeley is a perfect choice for summer study.

Courses in the Summer English Language Studies program are appropriate for intermediate through advanced students who want to enhance their English language skills, improve job performance, or undertake university work.

There are five main Summer English Language Studies courses—ESL 6, 7, 8, 9 and W9. Courses are offered through our six-week and/or three week-sessions. Different course topics and related fieldwork projects give you the chance to use your English language skills in the classroom and community.

In each course, you participate in field trips and fieldwork assignments to increase interaction with native speakers and use your English in conversation. Past events have included escorted dinners, museum tours, visits to local businesses, lectures by famous Berkeley locals, and more. Since most of our courses do not meet on Fridays, you are free to visit the local attractions on long weekends.

 

Summer 2018

Courses in the Summer ELS program are appropriate for intermediate to advanced students who want to enhance their English language skills, improve job performance, or undertake university work.   We will continue to add details about courses, so check back periodically for the most up-to-date information.
