Eastern Florida State College offers a comprehensive Intensive English Program (IEP) designed for non-native English speakers who are deeply committed to enhancing their language proficiency.
This rigorous program, which accommodates both international F-1 visa students and those who don't require an F-1 visa, is valuable for working professionals and students preparing for university studies or professional programs. Participants come from more than 50 countries, and our small class sizes, averaging around six students, provide ample individual attention and opportunities to develop conversational skills.
Instruction covers all aspects of the English language, including reading, listening, speaking, grammar, writing, voice and speech improvement, and TOEFL test preparation.
Intensive English Program
We offer three sessions of daytime classes annually:
- Fall Term: Lasts for 16 weeks from August to December, with 18 hours of classroom instruction each week.
- Spring Term: Lasts for 16 weeks from January to May, with 18 hours of classroom instruction each week.
- Summer Term: Lasts for 12 weeks from May to August, with 20 hours of classroom instruction per week.
Classes are conducted in person, from Monday to Thursday, starting at 9:30 AM and concluding at 2:30 PM on EFSC's Cocoa Campus.
Our dedicated Intensive English Program instructors are experienced educators with advanced degrees, well-versed in the latest advancements in second language methodology. They frequently incorporate contemporary, culturally relevant articles and multimedia materials to supplement regular coursework.
The way you sign up for the Intensive English Program depends on whether you're an international student with an F-1 visa or a local resident without one. Regardless of your visa status, if you're new to the program, you'll need to take a placement test upon entering the program to determine your level of English proficiency.
