IEP Curriculum

Our Curriculum has changed! Beginning Fall 2017, we will have 6 levels of Intensive English and 2 levels of Foundation. An explanatory diagram of how the "new" levels compare to the "old" ones is available.

We have an innovative Intensive English Program which includes a strong emphasis on "learning by doing." There are 6 levels of our Intensive English Program; each level has two courses: Oral Language and Written Language. Grammar is integrated into both courses, and each course meets for 8 hours per week. Students spend 2 hours a week focusing on integrated skills. So, each level includes 18 contact hours per week and may be completed in one 7-week term. Here is a sample weekly schedule for students in our Intensive English Program
