The Cultural Education Program consists of a variety of practical language courses that give students active involvement in their study of English. The Cultural Education Program provides language learners many opportunities to interact with teachers, classmates, people in the city, and helps the students to develop all their language skills while they are participating in interesting, enjoyable, and useful activities.
Some Cultural Education Program courses being offered by the IELP are:
Learn about Americans who have had a great influence on American culture - people who have made us happier or safer or even healthier. You'll find out about the lives of famous musicians and actors, the books of well known American writers, the thoughts and acts of important politicians and stories about others who made a difference in the lives of Americans. We will watch video clips, listen to music and read short stories and newspaper articles. Come and learn new expressions and increase your vocabulary while you learn about American icons!
You will learn about how Americans speak with each other as well as the common expressions, idioms, and slang that they use in conversations. In addition, you will talk about current and interesting topics and practice using common American expressions. There are three levels of conversation classes: elementary, intermediate, and advanced, so everyone has a chance to participate!
Learning English through games is a fun and enjoyable way to learn language. By playing games you will have the opportunity to increase your listening and speaking skills and learn new vocabulary and expressions. In addition, you can learn more about American culture.
