UNIVERSITY OF WEST FLORIDA English Courses in Pensacola, USA
About UNIVERSITY OF WEST FLORIDA
The Intensive English Program offers programs designed to help non-native speakers develop English skills for personal, academic, and professional purposes. IEP classes are similar to university classes in teaching style and content; therefore, students are required to have studied at least one year of English before attending the IEP. The academic Intensive English Program improves the listening, speaking, reading, writing, and vocabulary skills needed to study at an American university and includes TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) practice for advanced students. The official TOEFL is given on campus at the UWF Testing Centers. The Intensive English Program offers instruction on four levels and accepts students from high beginning through advanced. Students are given a placement test on the first day of class, and level is decided by committee. Advancement to the next level of instruction is based on the student’s post test score and class performance. Advanced students take an exit test. In order to allow adequate time for the processing of the I-20 form for a VISA application, students should apply to the Intensive English Program six to eight weeks before the beginning of a session. Fall and spring semesters consist of two seven-week terms, and summer consists of two six-week terms. There are 20 class hours of instruction per week. Students may enter the program during the first week of any session. We invite you to search our website for the information you need about our program and activities. If you still have questions, please email, write or call and we will be happy to assist you. Join our students from around the world for one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. We look forward to seeing you soon!
