You Are Welcome Here!
The Intensive English Program at the University of Northern Colorado offers instruction in English for Academic Purposes. Our mission is to provide English language learners (international and domestic) with English language instruction for academic purposes. We use an assessment to place students at appropriate levels so we can best prepare them for academics at an American university. We also aim to provide on-going language support in the form of English language tutors, and to increase international students' understanding of intercultural communication and American university culture.
Students who have completed high school may qualify for the Intensive English Program. Degree seeking students who have provisional admission with an English language requirement must complete all required courses (based on placement exam) at 80% or higher to meet the language provision.
Undergraduates may begin taking academic classes with intensive English classes when they reach level 6, and graduate students may begin taking academic classes with intensive English classes when they reach level 7.
Whether you wish to pursue a degree at UNC or to enrich your English language fluency, we are here to offer you success at every step!
English Conversation Groups
Mondays and Wednesdays
2:30 to 3:30 pm
Please come to our English Conversation Groups! We offer an opportunity for you to practice your English language skills, make friends, and learn about different cultures.
Participants are placed into small groups, each with a volunteer who is a native speaker. Our volunteer will help you with pronunciation, vocabulary, idioms etc. in a friendly and relaxed situation where you don't need to worry about making mistakes.
We will help you understand American customs and adapt to living in Colorado. We have discussions on different topics, and sometimes we might play friendly games -- in English, of course!
