Maharishi University of Management Announces New English as a Second Language Program

FAIRFIELD, IA--(Marketwired - June 13, 2016) - Maharishi University of Management (MUM) is happy to announce the launch of a new English as a Second Language (ESL) program to aid students wishing to improve their English speaking skills for use in professional or academic settings.

The new program features the Focal Skills Method, a modular system of language learning that allows students to focus on developing one set of skills at a time. The modules include listening, reading, writing, and speaking. This modulated approach gives students a firm foundation in each skill before they move on to the next module.

In addition to the modular course work, the MUM ESL program will offer coursework in understanding American culture and government, and English-language film. Student learning is supported by the wide variety of books in the MUM ESL resource library.

Upcoming start dates for the ESL program include August 22, 2016, October 31, 2016, February 13, 2017, and May 1, 2017. Read more information here.
