English USA Provides Resources, Guidance to Students and Stakeholders
International students interested in pursuing an intensive English program in the US need look no further. The wealth of resources and guidance provided by EnglishUSA – the American Association of Intensive English Programs – is making waves. With more than 400 accredited Intensive English Programs (IEPs) participating, EnglishUSA is a one-stop-shop for students, parents, colleges, and IEP professionals.
The organization provides up-to-date information for students and hosts professional development conferences and webinars for member institutions and stakeholders. In addition, EnglishUSA liaises with governmental regulatory entities to promote high standards of international education while representing the best interests of its members.
EnglishUSA takes a leading role in data collection and dissemination in the Intensive English Program community. The organization recently conducted a comprehensive survey of its members, the results of which were presented at several conferences. In addition to sharing invaluable knowledge and promoting member communication, this practice also helps to maintain and strengthen the standards of IEPs across the country.
Helping International Students Achieve Goals
One of EnglishUSA’s primary objectives is to provide tools for students to select the best intensive English program for their needs and interests. EnglishUSA understands the factors students take into consideration such as geographic location, costs, housing options, and pathway opportunities.
By working intimately with both international students and English language schools for many years, EnglishUSA has a uniquely broad perspective and the expertise to match students with the right intensive English programs.
“There are more than 400 EnglishUSA member programs. All of them are accredited, which means that they meet high standards for quality. And that means students can depend on them to give a good value for their money. Students will get a high-quality English course that will meet their needs and help them reach their goals,” stated EnglishUSA Interim Executive Director, Ann Aldrich.
