UNO has offered English as a Second Language to international students for nearly 35 years. Students are in class 21 hours every week. Sessions last eight weeks and are scheduled six times throughout the year. New ILUNO students collaborate with program instructors to evaluate their English ability and select language classes at one of six levels – beginning to advanced. Experienced instructors teach reading and vocabulary, grammar and writing, listening, pronunciation, TOEFL preparation, and critical-thinking skills. Instructors are available daily to meet with students to discuss their class work, language skills, and future academic plans.
