Established in 1979 and accredited with the AAIEP (American Association of Intensive English Programs) and the UCIEP (Consortium of University and College Intensive English Programs), the Intensive English Program in the Department of World Languages at West Virginia University has become a well-established program for international students needing to improve their English proficiency prior to entering an academic course of study.
Students of the IEP are given help for all aspects of their lives in Morgantown, West Virginia. Services include assistance with housing, banking, academic and personal counseling, health care, and legal matters. In addition, students have access to most University facilities and entertainment.
The Business English course offers practice in English for business and professional situations. Activities include discussions, learning of business vocabulary, and writing for business situations. The TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) is also practiced and administered.
The TOEFL Preparation course focuses on the strategies, skills, and practice which students need to increase their TOEFL scores. Students practice a variety of activities designed to address problem areas of the TOEFL, analyze correct and incorrect answers, and practice the 3 sections of the test.
This course for undergraduate and graduate international students provides guidance and practice in general and academic speaking and listening skills and improves oral comprehensibility through pronunciation activities. Students will improve their speaking and listening skills so that they may successfully engage in classroom discourse, understand lectures, and gain confidence in their ability to communicate with people in a variety of situations. Students will demonstrate their speaking skills in a variety of classroom situations and through an exit interview with the professor. Undergraduate and graduate international students at the beginning of their academic study often experience difficulty in communicating with their peers and their professors and in understanding academic lectures because they have not previously been exposed to authentic spoken English. This course provides them with the skills and practice they need to adapt to their new environment and participate successfully in the academic community.
