Language Skills for Professionals image


A strong command of English can help you thrive in business, academics, and everyday life. UNLV Continuing Education's English as a Second Language (ESL) courses are tailored to fit your skill level and will help you progress from non-speaker to full fluency.

You will learn from qualified, professional instructors at a respected American university. You will study alongside peers who are determined, eager, and focused on learning academic English skills--primarily grammar, vocabulary, reading, listening, pronunciation, speaking, conversation, and writing. 

The three ESL levels will help you improve and develop your English skills while learning about American culture and traditions. Moreover, you will finish confident in your ability to communicate and engage with different kinds of people from around the world. 

Courses are assessed in a pass/fail format.

You will need to take an ACCUPLACER placement test prior to registering for any ESL course other than Beginner. Register for the ACCUPLACER test online or call 702-895-3394 for phone registration. If you have taken the ACCUPLACER tests at another institution please provide the documentation to no later than one week prior to the course start.
