This three-week program combines language training with cultural activities and is typically offered in the summer, providing 15 hours per week of morning in-class instruction, combined with various activities on and around the university campus.
The program offers activities where students can interact with US and other international students. Language and culture instruction takes place each morning, Monday-Friday from 9-12. During the first half of the morning, instruction focuses on speaking and listening with an emphasis on accuracy and fluency. The second half is devoted to culture and conversation.
The entire curriculum is designed not only to improve English-language proficiency but also to provide an awareness and appreciation of American culture – especially that of the Los Angeles area.
