  • Are you interested in developing your English language skills in an academic context?
  • Are you nervous about the amount of reading and writing in the U.S. classroom?
  • Do you want to learn more about American culture?

If you answered yes to one of the above classes, then this specially designed course is just for you!

This integrated course, designed for international undergraduate students builds students’ speaking and writing skills around provocative cultural themes. In academic group discussions and presentations, students will recognize and develop aspects of pronunciation and communicative strategies to improve the effectiveness of their ability to interact in academic and informal settings. As writers, students will explore the challenges of the academic writing process and focus on developing academic vocabulary, rhetorical structures, style and organization of argumentative writing within their disciplines.
