Intensive English Program

The Intensive English Program is a comprehensive, non-credit program in English for speakers of other languages. It is designed for motivated individuals, aged 17 and older, who wish to learn English or to improve their command of the language for university study or for business or professional advancement.

We encourage our students to work closely together, to learn from each other, and to develop cultural awareness. In our classes, students participate actively, and they develop all language skills through a variety of materials and projects. We offer a challenging curriculum with regular homework.
