Intensive English Institute (IEI)
FAU's Intensive English Institute utilizes highly qualified and experienced ESL instructors to lead small, intimate classes. This ensures a comfortable, friendly, and stimulating atmosphere for learning English.
The IEI Program Consists of Six Levels
Each IEI level of instruction consists of four subject areas: Grammar, Reading/Writing, Conversation, and Listening. Students in levels four and five, who qualify with a pre-test score, may choose to enroll in the TOEFL elective class instead of the Conversation class.
Each student is assigned one hour of lab class per week in IEI's own 20 station wireless computer lab. This hour will include the use of language instruction software and other computer based work assigned by instructors. The computer lab is open 8:30 A.M to 10:00 P.M, Monday through Friday, and may be used for internet access, email, or other student needs.
The Institute's faculty members are highly trained and experienced professionals who specialize in teaching English as a Second Launguage. Drawing from backgrounds in writing, curriculum development, teaching English in foreign countries, and counseling, our teachers are extremely adept at providing top quality instruction using current teaching techniques and materials.
Each semester, students are taken on a field trip to one of South Florida's many attractions. In addition, special themed parties are also held throughout the year. These activities give students opportunities to experience American culture and the chance to practice English outside of the classroom.
