Preparatory Year in Intensive English

Top Preparatory Year Programs in Intensive English

Participation in a preparatory program may be an excellent way for high school students to learn what will be expected in a college setting. This year of study is often used as a bridge between high school and college and could lead to better results during a student’s college experience.

What are preparatory programs in intensive English? Degree-seeking students often hope to experience life in other countries, and this often leads to the necessity for fluency in a second or third language. Those students who hope to enroll in a university or other educational institution where classes are taught in English may want to participate in a preparatory program. These bridge programs can lead to familiarity with the manners, colloquialisms and cultural mores of the country where the prospective school is located. Mathematics and writing classes may be offered in the language of study, further promoting comprehension of the language.

Students who work through a preparatory program in intensive English may find they no longer have to complete the TOEFL or related language competency exam. Some students have found that this type of preparatory course leads to scholarships with their preferred universities. Additionally, participants in these programs learn to understand cultural norms.

The cost of participating in a preparatory program in intensive English will vary based on the school of choice and the length of the program. It’s important that prospective students carefully research the schools they are interested in before making a final decision.

The ability to speak English fluently may open many career opportunities in the country of schooling and in the country of origin. For example, students who have completed a preparatory program may find it much easier to gain employment during their college years, whether those jobs are located on campus or in the community surrounding the school. If students return to their country of origin, they may find there are employment opportunities as interpreters online, at call centers, at recruitment centers and at international service centers.
