Intensive English Program - Intermediate Program Code 908612

The Intensive English Program (IEP) at NWTC is designed to prepare students for the academic language demands of college-level coursework. The IEP offers two levels of English instruction: Intermediate and Advanced. Students attend class 4 hours daily Monday through Thursday in Listening/Speaking, Reading, Writing, and Grammar. Students also have access to the language lab for independent study and practice in the afternoon. The IEP instructors have many years of experience and have lived and/or taught extensively in other countries. The benefits of participating in the NWTC Intensive English Program (IEP) are: Attending an IEP program located in a college environment which provides student support services for academic success; Academic language skills necessary for success in college-level courses; Acclimation to the US college experience prior to enrolling in full-time college-level programs; Ease of transition into post-secondary programs at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College; or, transfer to other state colleges or universities within the United States; Nearly twice as much instruction for the cost as compared to other US Intensive English Programs. This program also offers a six-week Summer Academy with integrated curriculum for intermediate students. The Summer Academy will provide early preparation for further intensive English study.
