The Summer Intensive Program includes the following courses:

General ESL:  In the ELP intensive course, students will take a communicative approach to learning English. Although points of grammar will be thoroughly reviewed, students will focus mainly on the skills of speaking and listening. Students will be expected to play an active role in speaking and listening in class.

Literature Circle: This class aims to develop students’ proficiency at integrating critical thinking skills, reading tasks, writing tasks and vocabulary development. A “Literature Circle” is a structure for talking about a book with peers as the book is read together.

Pronunciation: In this class, students will take a communicative approach to learning pronunciation.  Students will improve their pronunciation by focusing on vowel sounds, consonant sounds, syllable stress, word stress, contractions, rhythm and intonation.

Vocabulary and idioms: In this class, students will take a communicative approach to learning vocabulary.  Students will study new vocabulary in context, as well as learn a variety of natural English expressions to be used in conversation.

We are looking for instructors with a minimum TSL Level 1 Certificate or equivalent. 

We offer competitive compensation : $42 / contact hour.
