This course builds on the language proficiency successfully gained in Intensive Academic Preparation 1. Students develop the ability to read and comprehend texts of moderate complexity, build on their knowledge of basic paragraph structure, grammar, and mechanics, and develop listening comprehension and speaking skills in both informal and academic situations.
Emphasis is placed on developing a comfort in the classroom environment by applying the four language skills in an interactive form, integrating the functions of grammar, mechanics, and punctuation, complemented by practicing the English language in workplace settings.
Intensive Academic Preparation 2 is designed for students to determine their skills and knowledge in preparation of their college studies, as well as for college students who desire more reinforcement in their English language skills as they apply to their education. Successful completion of this intensive course will establish a lower advanced level of English language fluency similar to an IELTS score of 6.0.
