Iowa Intensive English Program
The University of Iowa Intensive English Program (IIEP) provides intensive English instruction and a cultural, social, and academic orientation to the United States. Instruction emphasizes spoken and written English crucial to college and university study in the U.S. Grammar, writing, reading, listening, comprehension, pronunciation, and conversation skills are taught each day at all levels. Students receive 20 hours of instruction per week in addition to individual work in the language laboratory.
Because class size is small (12–15 students per class), each student receives personal attention and encouragement. Our teachers are well-trained and hold advanced degrees in teaching English as a Second Language. All have considerable teaching experience and most have taught outside the United States. Students starting intensive English studies at the beginning level will normally acquire sufficient proficiency to begin academic work after three to four terms in the IIEP. Intermediate students usually require one to two terms, and advanced students normally require one term. The duration of intensive English study required for an individual student varies depending on personal motivation, level of proficiency, and aptitude.
