Short-Term English Culture Program

These one to four week English Language and Culture programs are organized for overseas groups of six or more students. Classes are designed to introduce students to aspects of American culture and communication skills and help them apply this knowledge in their personal lives, work, and studies.

Topics of instruction deal with everyday language in the community, including introductions, lifestyles, education, shopping & dining, public transportation, sports & recreation, and California & American history.

Programs consist of both classroom instruction and out of class activities, giving participants real-life experience in using English beyond the walls of the language classroom. Out of class activities focus on helping students apply and reinforce, in real-life situations and settings, the language and cultural content they are studying in class through a variety of field trips, cultural presentations, and projects.
