Why join Claflin's Intensive English Learning Program? We'll tell you!
Upon completing the IELP (Intensive English Language Program), students receive provisional admission into their major field of study at Claflin.
No TOEFL Requirements
After completing the IELP, students can move on to Claflin’s full-time academic program without taking the TOEFL (Test of English as Foreign Language). TOEFL scores are not required for IELP admission.
Fast Oral English Improvement
The IELP focuses on improving students’ confidence and English pronunciation, two key steps to rapid English improvement. Students learn and practice their English in a range of formal and informal contexts, not just in the classroom!
Customized Individual Tutoring
IELP professors provide each IELP student with weekly individual tutoring. This plays a platform to recognize his or her weaknesses and strengths for their English proficiency, and help them be fluent English speakers.
Extensive Support Networks
Because studying in a new country can be challenging and stressful experience, our program offers many resources to help ESL and EFL students overcome a range of cultural and linguistic obstacles. Claflin’s faculty, staff, and students are friendly and helpful, and the IELP director personally tracks and supports each student’s social and linguistic progress.
Convenient On-Campus Facilities
All IELP students have access to Claflin University campus facilities, which include computer labs, a student union, a fitness center, a library, a health center, and tutoring services.
