Hoft Institute teaches ESL lessons at our language school in downtown Austin Texas. Our English-as-a-Second-Language courses are designed to prepare international students to pass the IELTS and TOEFL tests – and to successfully attend classes at American colleges and universities.
Our acclaimed English-as-a Second-Language program serves a diverse group of students from around the World. We have six levels of courses, with a program for every student’s initial level of language proficiency. These range from Level 0 ESL lessons for complete beginners to our Level 5 courses for those who have some fluency in English but need help with verb tenses, pronunciation and American accent nuances.
All HOFT Institute ESL lessons are intensive – classroom communications are in the English language only. This immersive approach ensures that all participants are learning and practicing in a real-world environment: listening, speaking, reading and writing in a realistic group setting. Each ESL lesson program includes instruction in both written and spoken American English vocabulary, grammar, phrasing and sentence structure.
English-As-A-Second-Language (ESL) Lessons in Austin TX USA
Austin, Texas is a modern and rapidly growing city with great schools, a temperate climate, and a culturally diverse population. It’s the perfect place for international students to study in the United States! The cost of living is low compared with other metropolitan areas in the U.S.; and there are lots of inexpensive activities in the downtown area and suburbs. Austin is rightfully known as “The Live Music Capital of the World” – most restaurants and clubs have bands or a live performer playing every evening.
It’s very easy for a visiting student to fit into the community; and you’re likely to find plenty of people of similar nationalities, ethnicities and backgrounds in your ESL classes and Austin generally. We have a very close-knit community at HOFT Institute, and make a point of welcoming the new members of our ‘family’ each semester and introducing them to their fellow classmates. It’s not unusual to meet people from your own country at these meet-and-greet sessions or your first ESL lesson!
