ELI University Preparatory Program
The ELI University Preparatory Program’s mission is to prepare students for serious academic study in the English language. The immersion program operates year round and offers eight levels of intensive English. Each level consists of 120 contact hours, which provide a strong foundation in the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. At the higher levels, there is greater focus on academic reading, essay writing, and notetaking. The program also supports students with supervised self-assessment and advising. As the program expands, other activities in English will be added e.g. drama, media, public speaking, etc., to promote the use of English as the primary medium of communication.
The preparatory program features an international staff of experienced English teachers who utilize modern pedagogical methods for second language acquisition. Classes are highly communicative and interactive; students are challenged to use English constantly and extend their capabilities in every aspect of their AUK experience.
