    • Academic English Program

    • About This Course
    • The Academic English Program is offered year-round with sessions beginning multiple times each year. After finishing the program, students are able to use English successfully to complete academic course work at the undergraduate and graduate level and will be ready to participate in classroom interactions as they begin degree studies at the university. Students enrolled in the Program receive 18-25 hours of classroom instruction per week. Students applying for Academic English must have a minimum of a high school diploma, but all students may be accepted regardless of their English language skill level.

      The Academic English Program offers English classes, from elementary to advanced levels. Courses in the program focus on developing the ability to use English to complete university level tasks while building knowledge of academic content and vocabulary. Upon the student's arrival, they are required to take an English proficiency test to help determine the level best-suited to their ability. Students in all levels of instruction develop their reading, writing, speaking, listening, vocabulary, grammar, and cultural skills to prepare themselves for future academic study in a university environment. Through organized classroom instruction and opportunities to engage outside of the classroom with other university and international students at the university, students rapidly build their skills and become more comfortable with English. Additionally, students can choose from a wide variety of elective classes and will have independent study time, outside cultural activities and conversation partner exchanges in order to enhance the overall study experience. Conversation partners meet informally to talk with one another and participate in social activities together. All Academic English Program students have access to university campus facilities. When students complete various levels of the program and meet academic requirements, they will be able to progress to either INTO Pathway programs to undergraduate and graduate study, direct undergraduate or direct graduate admission to the university.

      Small, interactive classes are emphasized to ensure full student participation. Class sizes range from 17 to 20 students. Every effort is made to keep classes at an ideal size for effective English language instruction.
