The Program in American Language Studies (PALS) is the ESL program at Rutgers University-Newark. PALS and Rutgers have a long established relationship, working together for over 20 years to provide exceptional English language teaching to international students and community citizens on the most diverse campus in the United States. PALS students serve as the core of the diversity of the Rutgers-Newark campus.
Running six sessions annually, as well as a winter workshop, PALS offers classes in intensive English study, English for Academic Purposes, TOEFL and IELTS test preparation, Accent Awareness, as well as TESOL certification courses. PALS students are encouraged to particpate in ESL club activities through field trips in and around New York City, which give them opportunities to practice their English in authentic contexts with expert speakers. Addtionally, PALS students can participate in any of the 50 clubs and organizations on campus.
Our instructors come from a variety of ethnic and linguistic background and either have or are working towards advanced degrees in Applied Linguistics, TESL, English or other related fields.
