Summary

The directory lists 381 programs designed to meet the pre-academic English language training and orientation needs of persons intending to pursue academic study, business or professional work, or training in the United States. The directory does not include programs intended to meet survival needs of refugees and recent immigrants, or remedial English programs for citizens and permanent residents. Information contained in the entries was derived from a 1988 survey of institutions offering the courses and programs. Introductory chapters include: (1) a description of the survey; (2) notes on the use of the directory; and (3) essays about planning for the study of English as a second language (ESL) in the United States, about the standards and plan for self-study for accreditation to the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and about the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs' (NAFSA) program of self-regulation. The directory provides citations in three sections: intensive ESL programs; postsecondary ESL courses; and secondary level ESL courses. Appended materials include the TESOL standards, guidelines for intensive English programs, guidelines for selecting an English language training contractor, and NAFSA principles for international educational exchange. Entries are indexed by sponsoring organization and by the beginning date of the program. (MSE)
