About the Program.

The Intensive English Program (INT) offers levels from beginning to advanced (100 to 700). Instruction from many IEP teachers, gives you the opportunity to hear different English voices and learn from a variety of education experts. Our instructors are highly educated and experienced professionals with extensive teaching experience both in the US and in international environments.

Students can join the first four or six weeks of the 10-week program.

In the summer quarter the 10-week program is offered in an accelerated 8-week format. The study hours for the 8-week accelerated program are the same as the 10-week program. Students can join the full 8-weeks from the beginning of July until the end of August or study July only (4-weeks Summer A) or August only (4-weeks Summer B).
