Following secondary education, students can register for courses that provide an environment for studying specific subjects. Whether stand-alone or as part of an academic path towards a degree, such courses allow students the opportunity for further education.

What are courses in languages? Broadly speaking, non-degree courses exist that allow students to build and advance their skills in new languages. Applicants can find options for any skill level, from beginner to expert, as well as varying scopes of study such as everyday usage, professional-grade comprehension or a particular dialect or context. The curriculum generally combines a study of grammar and syntax with active communication and a cultural context of the language.

The experience offered through these courses grants students improved reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in their language of choice. Language courses also encourage interpersonal communication skills and a developed cultural understanding.

Depending on the school, language and skill level in question, courses in languages can vary considerably in duration and cost. Prospective applicants benefit greatly from doing prior research into schools and courses of interest.

Developing fluency in a second language opens a variety of professional and life paths. With teaching certifications and relevant degrees in languages, students go on to become instructors or professors in the given language and/or its literature and history. Translators and interpreters also directly apply the skills learned in these courses. People working abroad benefit greatly from learning new languages. Language skills are useful for many who find work overseas, from diplomats and international service workers to marketing or sales executives.

Courses in languages are available at both domestic and international schools. Online and distance learning offers an opportunity for students to study with programs in nations that speak that language. For more information, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The English Language for Academic Communication (ELAC) program prepares students for study in degree programs in an American university context. Through instruction in speaking, listening, reading, and writing, students learn how to communicate their ideas effectively, interact using academic discourse, and apply their language skills to different situations and audiences for greater understanding and engagement. The ELAC program offers instruction at seven levels of proficiency: low beginner, beginner, elementary, low intermediate, intermediate, high intermediate, and advanced. Each level can be completed in one term of full-time study. Each level includes 140 academic hours of classroom instruction per level, per term. Each term is seven weeks long, and full-time students receive 20 hours of classroom instruction per week. The overall length of the program depends on the student’s initial placement and how quickly the student progresses from one level to the next. -
