A group of Korean and Vietnamese college students will soon take their newfound language skills back to their home countries after completing UNCW’s English as a Second Language summer program.
The five-week program, sponsored by the Office of International Programs, offers courses for students who have various levels of English proficiency. Students practice grammar, writing and reading for five hours each day and spend their afternoons partaking in group-based activities to become more comfortable practicing the language.
These relationships extend beyond neighboring desks. Paired with UNCW students, they meet with conversation partners for a few hours each week to further their language skills. These partnerships foster a stronger global mindset for everyone involved.
