This three- or four-week program is perfect for students seeking to improve their conversation skills while learning about Canadian life and culture. Offered at various times throughout the year, with a choice of full- or part-time study, the Language and Culture (L & C) program offers you both variety and flexibility.
In addition to improving your conversation skills, you will increase your vocabulary, enhance your fluency and, of course, make friends from around the world. Class activities may include debates, guest speakers, forums, media (news clips, talk shows, interviews), contact assignments, class exchanges, oral presentations, problem solving activities and field trips.
Many students choose to start their studies at the UBC ELI with Language and Culture before moving into the Intensive English Program.
Our Intensive English Program (IEP) provides full-time English language training in 16-week sessions beginning in January, May and August.
The IEP has six levels (100-600), from Elementary to Proficiency. New students take written and spoken tests to determine their start level and choose classes accordingly. Courses focus on skills such as Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing. Topics discussed vary from course to course but may include World News and Current Events, Drama, Business Concepts or Canadian Lifestyle and Culture.
