Language Training Program - English as a Second Language

One of the programs available to international students is Broward College's Language Training Program, which consists of four levels of English as a second language: EAP - English for Academic Purposes. After being accepted to our college, the student will be required to take the Broward College English Placement Test, known as the Levels of English Proficiency exam or LOEP. The scores on the LOEP exam will determine which level the student will be placed in.
 
IMPORTANT:  Students planning to apply for the Language Program are required to have a basic to intermediate knowledge of English in order to take the Levels of English Proficiency (LOEP) placement test.  
        
After completing level four of the language program, students who wish to continue their education with an associate's or bachelor's degree program at Broward College, will be required to:
  • Take the Post-secondary Education Readiness Test (PERT)
  • Based on the PERT test results, students may either continue into college level English (ENC1101) or complete two additional EAP courses: EAP1540C and EAP1640C. These two courses may be used as elective credits towards a degree.
