ESL curriculum prepares students for university study in the U.S.
Berkeley, Calif. (Jan. 26, 2012)—UC Berkeley Extension’s Intensive Academic English Program (IAEP) prepares intermediate and advanced international students for university study in the United States. More than a traditional English-as-a-second-language (ESL) curriculum, IAEP provides focused, rigorous instruction in university-level English to develop skills in speaking, listening, reading, academic writing, pronunciation and grammar.
IAEP offers six levels of intermediate to advanced English language instruction. Starting with a minimum three-month commitment, students stay as long as they need to achieve proficiency. On-site placement exams ensure students start in the instruction level appropriate for their skills. And experienced instructors and staff guide students toward this proficiency through supportive, individualized attention.
UC Berkeley Extension is now accepting applications for the inaugural session beginning in May 2012. All students with intermediate to advanced English skills are encouraged to apply. IAEP classes are located in downtown San Francisco. Learn more about IAEP.
UC Berkeley Extension is the continuing education branch of the University of California, Berkeley. Extension offers professional and personal enrichment programs in the classroom and online for adults in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
