Each ESL (English as a Second Language)/ELL (English Language Learners) course at Think is custom designed to meet individual needs and expectations.  We offer classes at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.  Our courses help non-native speakers live in English through the development of their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills.  We also specialize in courses on academic reading and writing that prepare students for what they will face at university and help them while they are there.  Jack R. Merchant, Ph.D., a Fulbright Scholar with over 15 years ESL teaching experience, creates and teaches each course.
