Intensive English Program: Korean Cohort

Description:

Located in the American west, the University of Nevada, Reno offers South Korean students the opportunity for studying English in the United States and thereby gaining exposure to both American English and American culture. The United States has long been the number-one study-abroad destination for international students and scholars and American English is increasingly the variety of choice for those studying English.

Language Training
Students will receive a total of 16 class hours of language training per week. The class hours will be divided into two courses: English for Engineers and American Cultural Topics.

English for Engineers
Students will use their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills as they focus on Engineering concepts. Students will visit the University of Nevada, Reno’s world-renowned Earthquake lab and the Nevada Advanced Autonomous Systems Innovation Center (NAASIC) research and development program related to drones, and also learn about the concrete canoe competition at which the University’s civil engineering students have excelled.

Integrated Skills: American Culture and Language
Students will improve their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills as they focus on a variety of American cultural and language topics.

Social and Cultural Activities
An important component of language acquisition is the opportunity to use language in informal social settings. To further this end, students are encouraged to participate in the many activities planned. Faculty members and students from around the globe join the activities. Activities may include trips to Lake Tahoe, Virginia City, outdoor recreation areas, museums, etc. (activities are contingent on weather).
