ESL 101 assumes no prior knowledge of English and completion of ESL 304 indicates language-level readiness for entry into American academia. When a student is accepted into our program, that student is administered an initial placement test, and the results of the placement test will help E.C.I. to place each student in the appropriate level that corresponds with their current knowledge of English.
