PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

OVERVIEW

The program is intensive consisting of 25 hours of English instruction per week. It is academic and primarily focused on preparing students to enter or reenter their CUNY College. Although our curriculum is student-centered we do not focus on teaching survival skills. Students who are just interested in acquiring basic communication skills are better served by Hostos' Continuing Education Programs.

Students use the computer on a daily basis. For example, they may type essays, do research on the Internet or practice their listening or reading skills by completing various self-paced activities.

Grammar and vocabulary are taught in the context they appear in reading or written materials.

Students are encouraged to use various resources to learn the language including reading the newspaper, doing projects, taking educational field trips or attending workshops or conferences related to their topic of study.
