  • Reading, writing and research skills
  • Expanded knowledge of academic content and vocabulary
  • Grammatical structures in spoken and written academic contexts
  • Lecture-listening and note-taking skills, participation in class discussions

“I could not imagine myself anywhere else but here. The amount of international students drew me in. After my first semester here, I learned that the best way to succeed in life is to be truly prepared.”
