A Comprehensive Introduction and Preparation to college in the USA
We've designed a robust English learning program where students learn to communicate effectively and professionally, ultimately mastering the English language to achieve their academic goals. They will explore their academic interests, get a taste of college life in the U.S., and what it feels like living in Florida. The length of Step 1 is a minimum of 4 months but in some cases may be longer depending on the level of English proficiency of the student at the time of enrollment.
1. Intensive ESL English Program
We emphasize constant learning with classes, language lab, cultural activities, and visits to universities in Florida while being totally immersed in American English; the world's most influential language in business and education. Students will learn to integrate all English-language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing, while communicating with one another in English.
