Sample Programs:

English and American Culture – Usually 1-3 weeks long with English instruction in the morning and activities and outings in the afternoon. No previous English instruction is required. The best time for this program is during summer or winter vacation.

English for Special Purposes – Usually 2-3 weeks long. Students would enroll either in an English course focusing on a specific skill or profession as well as courses in their desired field of study. This program provides the student with insight into the American classroom and prepares them for a global economy in their chosen profession.
