You will be taught important skills, such as creating and giving formal presentations, writing essays, summarizing, critiquing academic texts and far more.

Cultural Studies
To be a successful student in the US requires a developed awareness of the culture. You will learn about accents, diversity, social dos and don'ts, idiomatic language and other important cultural issues. All of this will help you become a more effective student and classmate at university.

Serious Environment
The classroom environment mirrors that of a university to prepare you for the style of classes you can expect there. You will be exposed to a variety of teaching methods, and the standards and expectations you will face at university. You will also benefit from the attentiveness and support of a school fully focused on international students.

Our lessons are interactive, interesting and student-centred to ensure you remain highly motivated throughout your time with us. Through our integrated syllabus, you will become familiar and comfortable with the types of courses, assignments and other academic situations you will face when studying at an American university.
