The Center for English Language at Baruch College's Division of Continuing and Professional Studies offers a range of programs specially designed to meet our students' academic, professional and social needs. We offer three I-20 Visa eligible programs which are AIEP (Academic Intensive English Program), English Express, and ESL Test Prep.

We emphasize an integrative approach to language instruction, ensuring that all students not only gain a foundation in language structure, but more importantly, they become comfortable and confident in using the language to communicate with native speakers. Class time is generally spent on listening and speaking activities, which incorporate grammar, vocabulary and culture. Homework is used to reinforce language points learned in class and focuses on short reading and writing activities. Classes are small so you will receive a lot of individualized attention from our highly qualified, knowledgeable, flexible and enthusiastic faculty. The Center for English Language also supports a state-of-the-art language lab, which allows students to practice their language skills and explore films, television, music, newspapers, magazines, and websites. Before registering for one of our courses, you need to take a placement test.

Please call our enrollment team at (646) 312-5000 to register to take the placement test.
