English for Foreign Students

English for Foreign Students (EFS) is Stanford's English as a Second Language Program for International Students. During the academic year ESF classes are strictly limited to matriculated international graduate students. Courses are only taken for academic credit and are aimed specifically at improving English language proficiency for graduate study and professional development. Additionally ESF offers ESL Teacher Training, TA screening, and administers Stanford's English Placement Examination for entering grad students.
