Intensive 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:  By integrating reading, listening and speaking, students will focus on their receptive skills (listening and reading) in order to enhance their productive skills (speaking).  Students will develop their language fluency, improve vocabulary, increase accuracy, and improve listening comprehension.  At the higher levels students will practice analytical discourse and debate.   I

  • Writing and Reading Intensive:  The focus of this class is writing, yet 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 from.  As students continue building background in various content areas, readings will serve as prompts for more expansive and indepent student writing.  Grammar is explicity taught in this class in the context of student's writing.  

  • Enrichment Class: Students will have an opportunity to choose their enrichment class so they can focus on a specific area of language need or content area that will help them to achieve their goals.  Students can improve their conversational skills in our Chatting with Americans Class,  or prepare for their major with our various specialized classes such as English for Business, English for the Sciences, English for the Arts.  If you enjoy writing, you can take our Writing Workshop.  Need to take the IELTS?  No problem, take our IELTS Test Prep class.  Do you love podcasts?  We even have an English through Podcasts course.  Choose the Enrichment Class that is right for you!
