ELP Foundations Program Content
Our staff is currently developing the curriculum for the pilot version of ELP Foundations. Here's a sneak peak at the course format:
- Students will have access to online content created specifically for the course, as well as additional online resources. Course content will include language instruction, academic culture, introductions to the other students in the course, and practical advice on getting settled at Northwestern as an international student.
- Students will complete weekly assignments that will help them practice speaking in American English. Assignments can be worked on at any time during the week before the final due date.
- Students will receive personalized feedback on their assignments from ELP faculty and graduate student peer mentors. Students will also have the opportunity to get to know one another through online discussions.
- In September, students who complete the course will be able to attend one or more guided field trips to explore Evanston and Chicago and meet their online classmates in person.
