|IEC Program Content
After comprehensive testing during the first week of the program, students are placed into levels from beginning to advanced. It is mandatory for all students in core classes to attend classes for a minimum of 18 hours per week. This includes all morning hours of language skills and a minimum of two afternoon courses per week. Morning classes are from approximately 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. during the spring and fall semesters (see actual class schedule below), and from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. during the summer. IEC core classes meet Monday through Friday for a minimum of three hours each day. They include the following skills: Speaking and Listening, Writing and Structure, and Reading and Vocabulary.
Afternoon Classes & Electives:
Students are required to attend a minimum of 3 afternoon classes. The class offerings depend on the level of the core classes they attend in the mornings.
At the end of each session, students receive an IEC grade report, a university transcript and a certificate of completion.
