Laurie,

At Georgia Perimeter College (a two-year unit of the University System of Georgia), we have a significant percentage of students for whom English is not their native language. Our minimum TOEFL score is 460. Students take an ESL placement test to determine placement into the appropriate ESL or English course. We have a large ESL program. A chart of the courses is at

http://www.gpc.edu/~esl/programchart.htm    
and a listing of courses is at   
http://www.gpc.edu/~esl/courses/index.htm 

The Common Course Outline for each course can be found at 
http://www.gpc.edu/~acadaff/ccos/index.php 

Given what you are after, you may want to examine only the highest level of our ESL courses.

Hello All,

 

My University is looking to develop a  semester  long ESL program.  It
is uncharted territory for us.  We want to accept students slightly
below our normal TOEFL score of 550, and give them a semester to develop
the skills/strategies to matriculate.  Does anyone have a curriculum
they'd like to share?  Or a syllabus?  We have a framework in mind, I
just want to see if we are running in the right direction.

 

At this point, even pointing me in the right direction would help.

 

As always, thanks!

 

Laurie
