The United States higher education system differs significantly from China’s high school education system. Education methods, education patterns, and administration are a few of these differences. College/university education in the United States emphasizes students’ critical and creative thinking, learning and teaching methods, and exam patterns. These are vastly different from a Chinese college education. Taking a college preparatory course in the English language will help students succeed and easily transition to degree programs at United States colleges and universities.

Benefits for students applying to study in the English Language Academy:

  • Emphasis will be given to speaking, listening, grammar, writing, and reading.
  • Students will be immersed in American culture which will assist in adapting to academic and daily life.
