This English as an additional language program acknowledges and celebrates the previous existence of home languages, cultures, and multilingualism while actively engaging students in their learning process. The 8 courses, lasting 8 weeks each, take students from A1 to B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) (Beginner to Upper-Intermediate). Students can test into the appropriate level according to their language skills.

Program Learning Outcomes

The REAL Intensive English Program at Westcliff University acknowledges and celebrates the previous existence of home languages, cultures, and multilingualism. Compared to English as a Foreign or English as a Second Language (EFL/ESL), English as an Additional Language (EAL) has a broader reach as EAL learners embrace their mother tongue and culture in the classroom as a linguistic resource used to learn English.

Programme Structure

Flipped Classroom Model
  • The flipped classroom model allows for direct instruction to move from the classroom to the individual learning space. Consequently, classroom time is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment, where instructors guide students as they apply language notions and functions while engaging creatively in their own learning process.
  • The program is divided into 4 levels. Students can test into any of the levels from the very beginner to upper-intermediate. Students who successfully complete REAL 301 will have the English proficiency required for undergraduate studies at Westcliff University. Students who successfully complete REAL 401 will have the required English proficiency to enter graduate programs at Westcliff University.
