Working closely with each ACU institution, INTERLINK Language Centers (ILC) provide programs of intensive English language training, academic preparation, and cultural orientation. These programs are designed for international students, scholars, and business people who plan to pursue their academic studies in the United States, or those who need to improve their English language abilities for personal and professional purposes. INTERLINK programs feature small classes (average: 8 students; maximum 12); a student-centered curriculum emphasizing content-based learning; a dedicated full-time faculty with MA or Ph.D. degrees in ESL (English as a Second Language), Linguistics, or related specializations; university courses for academic preparation; and conditional admission and TOEFL waivers for academically qualified students at selected universities. INTERLINK students enjoy full access to host university facilities. more . . .
