Language Center

Program Overview

Each Language Center student will follow a schedule of courses that is made to fit their academic English needs as predicted by the TOEFL exam and writing placement test.  This approach has been found to be very effective because each student can focus on those courses they need to improve their language skills. Currently, the Language Center has two main programs to achieve this goal:
Intensive English Program:  Two Levels
* Level One Intensive English Program:  For students at a low- to high-intermediate level of English.
* Level Two Intensive English Program:  For students at a high-intermediate to advanced level of English.
Intensive English Program classes meet Monday thru Friday for 50 minutes.
Super Intensive English Program:  Combines Levels One and Two of the Intensive English Program 
* Level Three Super Intensive English Program:  For students at a mid- to high-intermediate level of English.
Super Intensive English Program classes meet Monday thru Friday for 80 minutes. 

Each level has four classes geared to improving specific aspects of the English language.
1. Academic Listening and Speaking
2. Academic Writing
3. Academic Reading
4. Grammar in Academic Context
