Professional and Academic English
2-week program: July 15-28, 2018
4-week program: July 8-August 3, 2018
Language of Instruction: English as a Second Language
Using the successful AAA language program developed by Clemson University, this program is designed to dramatically improve the English writing, speaking, and listening skills and to enlarge the cultural perspective of each student. In addition to daily English classes, students will experience life at a top-ranked American university, visit US companies and civic groups, network with future leaders from the US and around the world, and enjoy visits to sites of cultural and historical importance.
If you’re serious about learning to speak English, there is no effective alternative to an English immersion program. Using the successful Acquisition, Application, Aspiration model, our English language programs emphasize all aspects of English language learning and provide you with meaningful, authentic ways to apply what you’ve learned.
Through the CU Global Connect language programs, you’ll attend challenging classroom sessions designed to improve your reading, writing, and speaking skills. You will also travel into local communities to complete creative language assignments. Additionally, you will spend time with industry professionals networking and working on your presentation skills. By the time you finish the program, you will be a more polished English speaker and more confident in your ability to engage English-speaking professionals.
In addition to the academic content, all CU Global Connect programs include recreational activities and cultural visits. On Campus, you’ll have access to the activities at the Fike Recreation Center, Underground Rec Center, and South Carolina Botanical Gardens and Geological Museum. On weekends and select evenings, you’ll enjoy visits to Atlanta (home of the 1996 Summer Olympics), historic Greenville, SC, local concerts and festivals, and the famous Blue Ridge Mountains for hiking and a waterfall tour.
