Welcome to Memorial University of Newfoundland's English as a Second Language Department

English as a Second Language

*** All updates on the COVID-19 pandemic will be communicated to students via Schoology ***

** The Intensive English Program and the Intensive Bridge Program will be offered online in Spring 2020. **

* The CanTEST is cancelled until further notice. The CanTEST will be offered again in the semester in which Memorial University resumes in-classroom instruction. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not authorized to hold the CanTEST in April. The CanTEST will likely resume in the Fall 2020 semester (if Memorial University resumes on-campus classes then). *

We welcome you to Memorial University of Newfoundland English as a Second Language Programs' website. If your goal is to improve your English for academic purposes to study at a Canadian university or to develop your communication skills for the professional workplace, we have an ESL program for you. Our instructors are highly qualified, dedicated and experienced in teaching English as a second language to students from all over the world. In addition to improving your English, you will have the wonderful opportunity to get to know Canadians and Canadian culture through activities both on campus and in the city.


Become a student at Memorial University! We look forward to helping you achieve your language goals and providing you with a rewarding cultural experience.
