These intensive non-credit courses have been designed to prepare students for college and university. They include work in reading, writing, listening, conversation, and grammar. We offer six levels from basic to advanced skills. Students can take either class (10 hours per week), or both classes (20 hours per week). F-1 students will need to take both classes for a total of 20 hours per week
