Designed for students interested in pursuing degrees in the U.S., Georgetown’s Intensive Academic English program will help you make the transition to academic life at an American college or university. Our program features full-time intensive courses that emphasize academic writing, reading, grammar, and communication. You’ll engage in lectures and class discussions, give presentations, take organized notes, critically analyze written texts and media, and learn writing and research skills for university-level coursework.
Throughout the program, our experienced faculty members will provide an integrated approach to academic preparation in English, offering individualized feedback along the way. By the end of the program, you’ll be prepared to pursue a degree in the United States, and have a greater awareness of cultural expectations in the American higher education system.
