More information about the Intensive Academic English program at Berkeley
This Intensive Academic English Program at Berkeley Extension offers six levels of English, from Intermediate to advance. All students must take a placement test at the beginning of the program, which will determine the level of the student in the English program. At the end of each level/session, you earn an award of completion, and once you complete the sixth and last level, you receive an award of proficiency.
Berkeley University is known for its high quality standards and so this English Program combines Berkeley quality instruction with academic, social and cultural preparation and orientation to life and study in the United States. These English courses are held in the UC Berkeley Extension Art and Design Center located in downtown San Francisco, California, which provides the great opportunity to keep improving and learning the English language outside of the classroom.
These English courses also practice methods used in the USA Universities, such as: analyzing, producing, and developing work in English, learning sophisticated vocabulary and excellent thinking abilities, improving the use of English in research projects, formal writing, and oral presentations.
