English for Academic Purposes. All students take classes integrating in varying degrees (depending on the level) listening, speaking, reading, writing, and vocabulary development. The curriculum for each group represents the most effective procedures and materials for learning to function in English in an academic setting. Classes are oriented to helping students become more active and interested learners with the objective of using what is learned outside and after the program. A state-of-the-art language laboratory is used for listening comprehension, while computer assisted language learning is employed as well as other video-based language learning activities in the classrooms. The EAP program is appropriate for any prospective undergraduate or graduate student who is seeking admission or is provisionally admitted to a college or a university. Students who have already been admitted can enroll in order to further improve their language abilities. This will help them excel in their subsequent academic programs. At the discretion of the director, a part-time program may be appropriate.
English for Specific Purposes (ESP) concentrates on using English effectively in specific academic fields such as business, chemistry, international studies, English linguistics and literature, physical education, and so forth. This program is suited to businesses in the region which desire training for executives or employees as well as groups from abroad, sponsored by government, industry, or international organizations. One type of ESP program is for TESOL teachers who need to improve their language preparation. This program is by special arrangement only.
