English Language Learning Opportunities

Beloit College offers English language courses for non-native English speakers (NNES). These courses help students to improve their writing, reading, speaking, and listening skills. These courses also help students make the transition to living and studying in the United States. Course topics include the liberal arts education system and the variety of cultures in the United States.

English as a Second Language (ESL) courses

We offer ESL courses in both fall and spring semesters. Course descriptions are available on the Portal. You can direct any questions about these courses to ESL Instructor, Christina Eddington (


Studying in another language can be difficult. Some students need help understanding homework or expressing themselves clearly in writing or speaking. We encourage non-native English speakers to ask for help when they need it.

Students can receive help from the following people:

A weekly English language resource table is held in our library. It is offered each semester and open to all students.

Do ESL courses count toward graduation requirements?

Yes, they do. Up to two units of ESL can count toward graduation requirements. Usually these courses meet a writing (W) requirement as well.

Summer language learning opportunities

In the summer of 2017, the Center for Language Studies will offer immersion courses in Chinese, Japanese, and Russian.
