English as a Second Language (ESL) Program

Welcome to the Intensive English as a Second Language Program at Coe College.

The Intensive English as a Second Language Program is well known and highly respected in the academic community. We have been offering small classes and guidance from qualified instructors for nearly 30 years.

The mission of the Intensive English as a Second Language Program is to help prepare students for academic study in the U.S. or professional development at home. In our program students will develop English proficiency, academic skills, and confidence.

We tailor our program, each semester and adapt to meet the goals and needs of our students.

Our small classes and high student-to-teacher ratio allow us to give each student the mentoring that they need.

Students in our Intensive ESL Program are often here to prepare for study in the U.S. and for professional development.

There are many opportunities for field trips, fun, and friendship.

  • Practice English with conversation partners
  • Meet American families
  • Live with an English speaking Roommate

Since Coe is a small college, the atmosphere is friendly and supportive. Cedar Rapids is a safe and pleasant city, with many opportunities to meet Americans.
