Program Description

Intensive English Language Program

Claflin University

Claflin University provides a twelve-month, research-based Intensive English Language Program (IELP) for students whose native languages are not English. The goal of this program is to enable students to improve their English language proficiency rapidly and effectively, so that they can move on to study one of Claflin’s 36 academic majors, and to help them adjust to American classroom cultures and university environments.

The English Conversation Partners (ECP) program is designed to supplement the IELP, and give IELP students more opportunities to practice what they have learned in class. Specifically, the ECP program matches an IELP student to an American student from Claflin’s Department of English and Foreign Languages. American students will share their own cultures and experiences with their international conversation partners, and learn more about their partners’ home countries and cultures.

IELP Goals

  1. TO EQUIP students with essential pronunciation, listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar skills in the English language

  2. TO INFUSE American cultural competency into the ESL curriculum through classroom and off-campus immersion activities

  3. TO ENHANCE students’ knowledge of American classroom cultures and prepare them for success in American colleges and universities
