In the Intensive Professional English program, you'll attend academic programming between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. during the weekdays, which will include lectures, hands-on activities, group discussions, and workshops. In addition to classroom instruction, you'll complete assignments individually at home, study and complete projects with classmates, and participate in field trips and experiences throughout the Washington, D.C., community. Each week, you'll have opportunities to participate in program and cultural activities, where you can apply the skills you are learning in class, meet students in other programs, and practice your English in comfortable social settings.
You can enroll in either the fall or spring semester programs, or choose to enroll for both semesters. Courses provided each semester are designed to develop your reading, writing, listening, speaking, and presentation skills, as well as to instill greater self-confidence so you can continue to advance in your chosen field.
