Welcome to WordWide Language Centers where we teach English for world peace in Ocean Beach, an internationally friendly community of San Diego. All WordWide classes are immersion based with nine students or less maximum. We teach all levels of English and are skilled at teaching total beginners through technical and advanced.
WordWide ESL Institute teaches English (ESL) to all the world's peoples whether already in the United States or coming to our school from other lands. This school is authorized under United States Federal Law to enroll non-immigrant alien students (SEVIS).
We teach our students in a way that allows them to be successful in speaking English for the rest of their lives. With individual attention to each student, our students consider our school a second home.
We are located four blocks from the Pacific Ocean and 24-hour surf and swim zones. Our Institute is part of our small beach town (inside a big city), and we and our students regularly take an active role in local festivals such as the Ocean Beach Street Fair, Fourth of July Fireworks off the OB Pier, volleyball on the beach, picnics and the Ocean Beach Holiday Parade.
Our Guest Speaker Series invites local business owners and a documentary movie producer to visit our students. This is really fun for our community, our ESL and TOEFL students and for world peace.
ESL Program Introduction
WordWide ESL Levels 1 through 6 is a Certificate Program that takes approximately 17 months to complete. Our ESL Certificate Program includes six levels of intense English courses that fully covers conversation, grammar, reading and writing. We are immersion based and concentrate on the correct use of grammer for communication in business and college. You may enroll any Monday. WordWide's very thorough placement test will place you in the correct small group of nine students or less to save you time and money. You learn very rapidly and very well in our classrooms.
Our TOEFL Levels I, II and III are also strong immersion courses with nine students to each ESL instructor. WordWide TOEFL courses are designed to teach for higher test scores to enter the best United States colleges or universities, but we also teach conversation, listening and writing skills in our TOEFL program to allow our students to be very successful English speakers. A TOEFL score is required to enter TOEFL III.
