Welcome to the English as a Second Language (ESL) Home Page at Memorial University of Newfoundland, in Canada.

Memorial University in St. John's is an excellent place to study English. St. John's, situated on the Atlantic Ocean, is the capital of the Canadian province Newfoundland and Labrador. One of the oldest cities in North America, St. John's is rich in history and culture, and well-known for its friendliness and beautiful, safe environment.

Memorial offers a 12-week Intensive English Program 3 times per year and a 5-week English Language Summer School each July. In addition, English for Special Purposes and custom-designed courses are offered for groups.

Students in the 12-week Intensive English Program (English for Academic Purposes) may apply for provisional admission to Memorial's degree programs. Students who are provisionally admitted to Memorial may make their admissions final by successfully completing the Intensive English Program and passing the test of English language proficiency given at the end of the program.

Class sizes are small (no more than 15), allowing for a great deal of interaction, and are taught by highly-qualified instructors. ESL students may use all of the university facilities, which include an excellent university library, student centre, computer facilities and a multimedia language lab.
