This course combines formal language coaching and cultural studies in the morning with an afternoon program of workshops, research, self-study and field trips.
Students are immersed in American English and the local culture which allows them to gain a mature perspective on both the language and the global context in which it is practiced.
There is a controlled practice in language structures and lexis development to achieve a good command of grammar structures, idioms, and vocabulary. Tutors set activities to sharpen understanding of the written text through reading exercises based on a broad range of materials.
Students study American culture and civilization through subjects such as History, Geography, Politics, Business, and Media.
Students who are preparing for exams (TOEFL and IELTS) are coached in exam techniques and strategies and receive regular individualized feedback on progress and specific areas for improvement. The timetable includes real-time practice examinations, weekly individual speaking tests, listening, reading, and pronunciation practice and coaching in study skills.
