Our Programs

1. Community Life Skills:  Develop the community life skills to communicate better with their peers, advisers and the local Community.  These skills will transform their writing style towards standard American academic writing practices.  Students will also learn to develop a support community that will support their stay in the U.S. at university and in the local community.  Using real venues to practice and perfect these skills students can develop global workmanship skills and be prepared to contribute to the world.

2. English Foundational Program for Community Life Skills: Personal coaching on oral and written language skills will build the capacity to function both at the university and in the local community.  A community life skills workshop will prepare them to develop American-style academic writing, and learn to network, do presentations and write reports.
