The mission of the English Language Center (ELC) at ALHOSN University is to prepare students for success in an academic English speaking environment. While the classes are specifically designed to develop the skills necessary for the successful completion of the TOEFL and IELTS examinations, there is an additional objective of equipping students with the study and language learning skills needed for academic achievement in an English language based university.
In accordance with the regulations set forth by the Ministry of Higher Education, students scoring less than 500 on the TOEFL or a 5 on the General IELTS examinations are required to participate in an Intensive Language Program. It is designed to suit every student’s language abilities. The classes are aimed at creating a community of learners that promote both independent and collaborative learning opportunities. Students experience an innovative learner-centered environment where they can develop their language skills and work towards the level of proficiency required to join the university degree programs.
The ELC divides the skills into three modules:
Listening and Speaking Development
