Course description

The Connect English Focus programs use an intensive, multi-skill approach. Students achieve success through focused, customized attention in speaking, listening, reading and writing. The Connect English Focus programs include English grammar development, academic reading and writing, real-world media projects, and planned social interaction events that are tailored to adult learners’ needs and interests.

The 12-hour-per-week English Focus Program prepares students for academic and professional success. English Focus offers students great classes and exciting material delivered by knowledgeable, caring teachers.

Each day of the English Focus class at Connect English consists of grammar or vocabulary presentation and review, transitioning into content-based projects and collaborative group assignments.

"Very good school with helpfull & talented teachers"

Julie Henriksen, student from Denmark

I spent four months at the La Jolla campus and it was an amazing time. The teachers were very talented, funny and they really would make you feel comfortable. I improved my English skills but I also got to learn so much about other cultures. They had a lot of activities every month so you can experience San Diego with your classmates and teachers.

The location is not the best if you don't have a car, but they have a shuttle bus that can pick up students at a very central place.

I can highly recommend the school.

visa

Visa support

We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.

If you are studying full time in the United States for more than 18 hours per week, you will receive an I-20 that you need to submit to the US embassy along with your F-1 student visa application. The I-20 has a SEVIS tracking number on it. Students who wish to apply for a student visa must pay the SEVIS fee online before going to the US embassy or consulate for their visa interview.

Your I-20 will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged $100 when you register.

Please note that United States law states that an I-20 can only be issued to students who intend to pursue full-time English language studies. United States law does not permit students to study part-time with an F-1 Student Visa. If you are studying for less than 18 hours per week, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa (B1/B2) on your own.

Study abroad worry-free with Language International's health and personal effects insurance coverage. When you book a course with us, you can opt to purchase an international insurance plan that covers not only your health care cost but also loss of your personal belongings. You must book your insurance in advance when you register.
