About PIL

The mission of the Program for Intentional Learning is:

  1. To provide students with knowledge, tools, resources, and ongoing support to become better language learners and to enhance their English learning experience at CESL.
  2. To prepare students for a successful transition to an American university through introduction and discussion of American academic and general culture and training in academic skills.
  3. To develop life-long successful learners who are prepared to prosper in a global society.
"CESL makes active students rather than passive students. Students must give opinions, argue and even sing in order to practice the new language."
