The AUM English as a Second Language Program offers a variety of English language courses and services designed to help non-native speakers of English improve and assess their English language proficiency. These programs include an Intensive English Program, Communicative English Program, IELTS Testing Center, and TOEFL ITP Assessment Series testing.
The Intensive English Program (IEP) offers high-quality English language courses to international students, visitors, and residents, so that all second-language speakers may feel confident in their English language abilities and possess a knowledge of American culture.
All IEP courses are taught on the campus of AUM by experienced and qualified ESL faculty members with master’s degrees in TESOL, ESL, or an English language related field. All IEP students will have many opportunities to participate in a variety of on and off campus cultural events as well as interact with other internationals and U.S. citizens from diverse cultures.
