Intensive English Language Program

Classes & Sample Schedule

Temple’s IELP offers 10 levels of instruction from beginner to advanced allowing you to move up in the program until you reach the IELP's highest academic level.   The outcomes for each level are aligned with the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) and our levels range from A1 equivalent to C1 equivalent.

Full-time and Part-time options available:

  • Students attending the IELP on an F-1 Visa must take all of the classes listed below.
  • Students on a B1/B2 Visa or other Visa type may take only one or two classes.  This is a great way to learn English AND save money!

Class Offerings:

  • Integrated English:  This class will use lessons in listening and reading comprehension to enhance speaking skills.  Students will develop their language fluency, improve vocabulary and increase accuracy. At higher levels, students will practice analytical discourse and debate.

  • Writing and Reading Intensive:  The focus of this class is writing, but readings will be used throughout the class in order to provide various sources of information from which students can write.  Readings will also be used as models for students to learn and build skills. As students continue building background in various content areas, readings will serve as prompts for more expansive and independent student writing.  Grammar is explicitly taught in the context of student's writing. 

  • Enrichment Class: Students will choose an enrichment class that focuses on a specific language need or content area that will help them achieve their goals. Students can improve their conversational vocabulary and spelling skills in our Chatting with Americans or Words and Sounds classes, or prepare for their major with our various specialized classes such as English for Business or English for STEM.  The IELP also offers a Writing Workshop, IELTS Test Prep, as well as English through Podcasts. Students are encouraged to choose the enrichment class that is right for them.  Click here for a list of all of our enrichment courses.
