v University of Illinois (at Urbana/Champaign) - Intensive English Institute

v Carl Sandburg College English as Second Language

All four programs offer customized English as Second Language program geared toward improving TOEFL score, improving conversational/written English skills, increasing professional English proficiency, and specialized English language tracks. For more details, please refer to Intensive English Language Program description pamphlet.

The varieties of programs are being offered to meet each student & their parents' needs. NWC offers one comprehensive service that offers "total care service" that continues throughout students' stay in U.S.. NWC assists and walks students and parents from the start of educational journey to completion of students' program or objective. For example, our Korean Representative provides systematic assistance to parents and students. Once students arrive in U.S., our U.S. staffs (working closely with school officials) provide seamless comprehensive service that lasts until the student is ready to return to Korea. Complete aftercare service is what sets us apart! We look forward to provide comprehensive educational services.

1. DePaul University English Language Academy:

DePaul University's English Language Academy (ELA) is an intensive English as a second language program that prepares high school and university graduates for admission to an American university. ELA's courses concentrate on four main areas of language instruction: reading & vocabulary development; writing (composition & rhetoric, including word processing); grammar; and listening & speaking (pronunciation, focused listening skills and spoken English). Classes meet five days a week, generally from 9:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., averaging 20 hours per week.

Courses are offered at five levels: foundations, intermediate, high-intermediate, advanced and university bridge. A placement test determines the appropriate level for each student. Successful students progress from level to level each term. The coursework also includes preparation for the TOEFL exam.

Founded in 1898, DePaul University is the largest Catholic university in the Midwest, with an enrollment of more than 17,000 students. It offers a wide range of academic and professional programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The third-largest 5ity in the United States, Chicago is a major center of culture and business, offering a wide array of resources, attractions, events and entertainment venues.

The English Language Academy offers noncredit certificate courses year-round.

Summer 200210 WeeksJume 24 - August 23, 2002February 15, 2002

The English Language Academy is a full-time non-credit certificate program. We offer English-as-a-second-language (ESL) courses at five levels of English proficiency:


  • Foundations Level - the most beginning level*
  • intermediate Level
  • High Intermediate Level
  • Advanced Level
  • University Bridge Level - the most advanced level

*Please Note: Our Foundations level (beginning) classes are for students who have studied some English. Before they begin our classes, these students can use or understand 200 - 400 words in English.


New students take a placement exam at the beginning of each term to determine their proficient level. As students succeed at one level, they will move to the next level of course work for the following term.


Full-time students take all 4 courses.

  • Writing and Word Processing
  • Reading and Vocabulary Development
  • Grammar
  • Spoken English and Listening


All of the English Language Academy courses are held during the day. Classes meet for 20 hours each week and are from 9:00 a.m. until 2:45 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Friday is a half day, with classes from 9:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

Here is an example of a class schedule at the High Intermediate level:
M, F
9:00 - 10:00
T, Th
9:00 - 10:30
M, F
10:15 - 11:15
T, Th
10:45 - 12:30
M, F
11:30 - 12:30
10:15 - 12:15
M, T, W, Th
1:30 - 2:45


While our curriculum is not designed to teach the TOEFL exam, all of the work in our core courses prepares students to do very well on the TOEFL test. In fact, our students consistently make excellent improvement on the TOEFL in ten weeks of intensive study in the Academy.

In our experience as both ESL and college teachers, we are well aware of the skills needed to succeed in university courses and in professional careers involving English. These skills involve much more than the TOEFL test can measure. In other words, the TOEFL is not the only indication of academic or professional success.

However, because we are interested in how our students perform on the TOEFL, an Institutional TOEFL exam is given every term for students who wish to apply for admission to regular degree programs at DePaul University. Many students attend the Academy before entering regular university programs.


Our elective courses are offered in addition to the regular full time program and are not included in the tuition costs for the Academy. Students may enroll in these electives along with their regular ELA courses. You do not have to be a full time student in the Academy to register for the elective courses.
