Many international students dream of going abroad to study English in a native-speaking country, and last year nearly 400,000 chose to head to America to do so.\r\n\r\nThe USA is an extremely warm and welcoming country towards international students, but what are the options to study English in the USA?
\r\nIf you have decided to study in the USA, regardless of whether this is English or a totally different subject, it is important you choose the right qualification and course. IEC Abroad has links with many different language courses which are designed to meet the needs of second language speakers (ESL). \r\n\r\nWhether you would like to achieve a formal qualification in English for university purposes, or you would simply like to learn English for your own enjoyment, we can help you every step of the way.\r\n\r\n
\r\nMost of the USA’s universities and colleges run intensive courses in English which adhere to a full-time timetable; however for an international student to be eligible for a place it must consist of at least 18 hours per week studying time. \r\n\r\nThese courses typically take place at the general university campus, allowing you to make full use of the university facilities. English courses in the USA are suited to those who wish to develop practical English fluency for travel or work, and focus on all areas including speaking, listening, and writing.\r\n\r\n
\r\nWe’re proud to have established strong partnerships with a huge number of universities in the USA, to which many of these institutions specialise in offering English language courses to international students wishing to apply for longer-term study in the USA. There are different levels of study available designed for those of varying proficiency, and their timetables are often flexible to allow a student to fit their language lessons around a typical university timetable. \r\n\r\nAdditionally, some courses are available as short-term vacation programs, where an international student can learn the English language whilst participating in alternative activities.\r\n\r\n
\r\nIELTS and TOEFL are the internationally recognised English language tests which most English-speaking universities ask for as part of their entry requirements. Both of these qualifications are effective ways to demonstrate your English proficiency to both academic institutions and businesses, and can be taken at various levels of difficulty in the USA. These courses can often be taken at any point throughout the year, and your studies can be tailored to help meet specific criteria if required.\r\n\r\n
\r\nRegardless of the type of course you wish to study for in this spectacular country, our team are here to help along each stage of your application process. So, for more information on studying English language courses in the USA contact IEC Abroad today.\r\n
