Course in Intensive English
The IEP – Intensive English Program – is subdivided into six levels and makes English unforgettable through multiple exposures to language, numerous opportunities to practice it, and an intensive recycling of the vocabulary.
It prepares students to communicate in English with a diverse array of speakers from around the world, who have a wide range of native and non-native accents.
An emphasis on cultural fluency enables students to navigate the social, travel, and business situations that they will encounter in their everyday lives.
This course helps students improve their writing skills in preparation for further academic work. Our teachers will provide helpful techniques, tips, and advice to improve student’s confidence. As student progress, they will gain the confidence to compose and understand text with security and creativity.
This course helps students recognize and produce the sounds of words through rhythm, stress, and intonation patterns of American English. As students progress, they will build linguistic independence which will motivate them to practice their conversation skills outside the classroom.
Duration of each level = 4 terms (192 hours) ::: 1 term = 4 weeks
Visa Students (F-1) must study at least 18 hours per week.
Upon arrival, students will take a Placement Test (written and oral) to assess their knowledge of the English language. It will take approximately 60 minutes and students will be placed into the class level based on the results of their placement test.
After taking the Placement Test, students participate in an Orientation Session, in which they are given all student-related materials, including their course schedule. After this session, they are presented to the class, classmates, and teacher.
