1 Thursday, January 20, 8-9am (EST) English Language Programs in the U.S. Guest Speaker: The Importance of CEA Accreditation Rachel Herman, Director, English Language Center University of Central Missouri Website: Q: how do I choose a good university or college which offer English courses? A: Hi Jason. What are your goals? Q: Could you please repeat the information regarding IEP affordability? A: Hi Yeffrey. Affordability is very important. At my university, tuition costs $401 per credit hour for undergraduate students and $506 per credit for graduate students. Q: I have question...if i want to come in august for IEP, when is best time to start procedure? A: Hi Jovana. To come in August, your application needs to be finished by March. Q: besides accreditation, like geography, length of course, cost of attendance and so on. A: Jason- yes. Those are also very good considerations to choose an IEP. Q: is IELTS and SAT required for entry into IEP? A: Jason - Not always. At my university, we don't require IELTS or SAT. We DO require some evidence of English ability and study. So maybe a student doesn't have IELTS, but they have high school records which show English study and excellent grades. That is ok. Q: get you give a list of schools that has a history of excellence in teaching English? A: Jason - You are asking a GOOD question! If you know your goals, it is easier to find the way, right? Ok- so for teaching English, go to TESOL.ORG. They are the professional organization for teachers of English. They have a list of universities which have excellent English teaching programs. Here is a link: (TESOL Directory of Degree & Certificate Program.) Q: How much I need to have on my bank account or sponsor account for IEP? And After that for undergraduate studies? A: Jovana - You need to show enough funds to pay for at least one year of the costs of studies. So it depends on the university. At my school, it's $18,000 (to pay for tuition, room, food, and so on).

2 Q: Dear Ms. Herman, thank you for the very informative presentation. I was just looking at the website of your university and have been trying to figure out if Accent Reduction that you mentioned as being part of the English language program is offered at a graduate level - maybe in combination with some other program. What is your take on this? A: Cayella - Good question. Accent Reduction is only offered through the IEP. It isn't at a ''graduate level'' because it focuses on pronunciation - - not vocabulary or other content. Q: how is the job outlook for IEP graduates in the future? A: Hello Jason, if you are talking about job prospects for students who complete an intensive English program in the U.S. the answer to that question will depend entirely on what each student plans to do next- - as a qualification for further study in the U.S., as a professional qualification in order to be employed back in their home country or something else entirely. Q: I am 27 this year and, my high school records are little old :)...is that ok, if I present my high school records from 2003 when I graduate... A: Jovana - Yes. We want to see your records from We will also ask you about what you have been doing since then. Have you continued to practice your English skills? Q: hi.. I want to study molecular biology in USA. But my English level is intermediate. How much UCM TOEFL score? And do you want GRE score? A: Hi Duygu sk! At UCM, we ask for a 500 TOEFL for undergrads (if you have taken TOEFL) or 550 for graduate students. If you have these scores, you won't need to take IEP. Are you a graduate student? Q: Thank you for answer. I was student from September 2003 to August i studied geography, but after that I was 2y in USA on au pair program, and when I back in Serbia last year i lost my student status, so now I not student anymore... A: Jovana - That information (about living in the US, completing the au pair program) will be very important for the Admissions Officer to know. That will help your application. Q: let's say one completes the IEP, then goes on to Masters and PHD? A: Jason - that's fine. In our IEP, 10% of our students are at the graduate level. Q: is there any inconvenience for a ''real- beginner'' student to join in the IEP? A: Yeffrey - my honest answer is YES! It is more affordable to study some English in your home country before coming to the US. If you start at the ''real- beginner'' level, it could take three or more years to finish IEP. That will be too long! Students will get frustrated. Q: is IEP an undergraduate program? A: IEP = Intensive English Programs - it would not be for an undergrad or grad degree, but it could lead to one if that is your goal to studying English

3 Q: but I look almost a year to find good school to i can back in USA...i think i finally find.. A: Hi Jovana: To search for quality IEPs, try the following online resources as well - Intensive English USA (www.intensiveenglishusa.org) American Association of Intensive English Programs (www.aaiep.org) University Consortium of Intensive English Programs (www.uciep.org) Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (www.cea- accredit.org) Q: is IEP equivalent of a bachelor s degree in English? A: Jason. No. Intensive English Programs are not academic credit oriented programs that apply toward a U.S. degree. Q: Yes, I understand that, maybe my question was a bit vague. Techniques of accent reduction, maybe as part of a speech pathology program. Let's assume that I would like to become an accent trainer one day, what is the best way to achieve that? A: Thank you for giving me more details. At UCM, we have a speech pathology program (BS and MS). The best way to become an accent trainer would be to complete the course of studies for that degree. Accent Reduction class is really helpful for intermediate level students or for students who have a significant, or ''heavy'' accent which makes native speakers not understand them. Q: Hi, Do you offer some scholarships for these programs? A: Hi Osmar - Yes. We have some scholarships. Most are based on achievement. You have to bring good grades and good recommendations. Some are based on the program of study you choose. Here is a link to our scholarship list: Q: Should I consider an IEP if my future goals are to teach English as a second language? A: IEP's are for students looking to learn English. There are typically graduate programs, such as a master's in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language (TESOL) that if you want to be English as a second language teacher, would be a degree option. Q: Hi, do you have summer English Programs? A: Hi Doris! Yes, we have summer programs. This year the academic summer program begins May 23. It is 8 weeks long. The summer camp program (more fun, less academic) is only two weeks long. It begins July 11th. Q: does this means that it is better for one to enter a bachelor s degree in English instead of IEP if one has a solid foundation in English? A: If your goal is to earn a BA in English, and you already have sufficient English skills to be admitted into the degree program, it would be best not to complete an IEP unless you really don t feel confident in your English ability to successfully complete the degree program. Q: You said before that students should be Intermediate Level to join your IEP. What is the range of scores on TOEFL (ibt and PBT) that would equal an Intermediate (or Level 4 or 5) at your university? A: Lorna - Level 4 is PBT. Level 5 is PBT.

4 Q: Is it possible to obtain conditional admission at your school? In that case, how many English courses should the student take? A: Hi Martha. Yes, we offer conditional admission. When a student applies, they give us information about their English level. If their English level is intermediate, they should take approximately one academic year of English classes BEFORE starting their degree courses. Q: Hi, do you have summer English Programs? A: Yes, we have summer programs. This year the academic summer program begins May 23. It is 8 weeks long. The summer camp program (more fun, less academic) is only two weeks long. It begins July 11th. Q: If students are accepted to your academic programs on Conditional Admission, do they need to take the TOEFL test to demonstrate their language level? Or is passing the Level 6 requirements enough to move into the regular academic program? A: At UCM, students can always take TOEFL. However, they don't need it for most programs. We have a TOEFL Waiver Program through the IEP. If students finish the highest level of IEP (level 6) and receive teachers' recommendations, they can begin their major courses without taking TOEFL. Q: I'm sorry but I didn't get the presentation How long is the IEP? A: Hello Osmar. Intensive English Programs can be as short six weeks up to one year or more depending on what a student's goals are and what his/her starting point is with English language ability. Q: When do I have to start the process to apply for the summer program that begins May 23? A: We need your completed application by March 1, Q: So if want to apply for one of the summer programs what do I need A: You need to fill out our online application, submit education records, a financial statement, and a letter which explains your educational goals. The link is: https://www.ucmo.edu/intl/. Q: hey!! How much American English differ from British one? A: Hi Ash. American English is better. Ha, ha! In my opinion, American English is less formal (in general), but there is also considerably different slang and regional differences. A: Ash - that's a tough question to answer through chat! Q: what do you recommend for an Upper intermediate student that wants to improve his English? A: 1st - Read and listen to as much English as possible. Reading helps you learn vocabulary and grammar. Listening will help when you speak with Americans.

5 Q: Do you offer any online courses regarding IEP? A: Yeffrey - good question. At this time, we do not have online IEP. One reason is because of immigration concerns. Intl students must take a majority of face to face classes to stay in status. Two is because we don't feel the technology is better than face to face instruction with highly qualified faculty.
