Academic English Program

Who is the program for?

The program welcomes students from all countries and cultures. The Academic English Program is for anyone who wants to improve their academic reading and writing skills. More precisely, it is for international students attending, or planning to attend an educational institution in the United States.

When does the program begin?

Students studying independently can begin their courses anytime.

What are the classes like?

Online classes are taught similar to classes in a high school or college. Just like in a live class, students watch videos, read passages, take quizzes, and listen to their teacher. If they have questions or need help, their teacher is only a click away.

Each course builds on the previous course, so by the end of the program, students will be able to:

• Use approximately 200 new words
• Understand advanced sentences
• Read authentic passages
• Develop and write academic essays
• Understand English lectures
