English Language Center (ELC)

Currently, the ELC offers intensive courses in Reading, Writing and Grammar to develop students’ academic skills for college level study. The courses are structured into a unique cohort system whereby instructors collaborate in a team to build up students’ academic skills. This method blends separate skills instruction with an integrated skills approach. Each teaching cohort follows a common delivery plan to reinforce and consolidate the skills being taught in each subject for a particular group of students. Rather than using a lecture model of mostly instructor-student interaction, the cohort model brings students together to foster a collaborative learning environment and to deliver lessons that are engaging, challenging and communicative.
