Offered and developed in partnership with The Ohio State University International Program of Agriculture (OSU-IPA), this online, self-paced course is designed for learners looking to build on their existing English skillset with an emphasis on agriculture terms and phrases.

The ESL conversational English program is comprised of 10 in-depth learning modules created by Franklin University subject matter experts with Master of Arts degrees in TESOL. The course utilizes technology-enhanced assessments and an interactive learning approach that includes videos, voice recordings, games, and study tips intended to support functional English literacy.
