Program Description

The Intensive English and TOEFL® Preparation program is focused on how students learn language in a total immersion environment. The skill areas (listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar) are integrated into each class through the use of topic areas that provide the context for communication. Each course has a robust integrated project that pushes the language learner to stretch their fluency level. The TOEFL-ITP® test is used as an assessment tool that gives the program external validation for the measurement of student learning.

Note: Students are placed according to their sectional scores (grammar/usage, listening, and reading) derived from the computer-adaptive ACT Compass English as a Second Language test.

Program Learning Objectives

To complete the Intensive English and TOEFL ® Preparation program, a student must:

  • Complete 6 progressively advanced courses

  • Improve their TOEFL-ITP ® score

  • Improve their fluency in all five skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar
