English for Academic Purposes

This program offers 15, 20 or 25 hours per week of language instruction which focuses on speaking, reading, listening, grammar and writing.

Strengthen your overall language proficiency through an integrated-skills curriculum. Emphasis will be placed on building English skills through task-based learning, projects, presentations and interactions to move from language awareness to active use of English to achieve meaningful communication goals. The curriculum will encourage you to think more deeply about yourself and the world around you and empower you as a leader and decision maker!

The Semi-Intensive and Intensive options will allow you to further develop effective reading strategies and/or academic writing skills through an additional 5 or 10 hours of instruction per week.

University Academic Preparation 

Challenge yourself to think, read and write critically within an academic context.

This program consists of a total of 20 hours per week of classroom contact hours. Seminar sessions are designed to further develop your academic communication, interpersonal, teamwork, problem-solving and research skills.

Expect to commit 10-15 hours per week outside of class to focus on assignments.
