Join Us in English-Learning Paradise in Honolulu, Hawaii!

Academic Track is a 4 months IEP program offered by English Language School - Kalakaua Campus for students 400 level or above planning to study in American colleges and universities.

Academic Track Program includes Academic English and Academic TOEFL classes. These classes are taken during the 2 skills classes (see Intensive English - IEP)

This is a four month course in which the students will start from the very basics to learn how to write effective essays in English. Just as all cultures and languages are different, so are writing styles in these cultures and languages. In this course, the students will learn skills that will help them organize information and communicate through essays using the style of organization that is accepted in English. They will start with prewriting, paragraph writing and revising and editing. Next, they will learn how to write a thesis statement and use this as a map to writing the rest of a traditional five paragraph essay. Then the students will continue to learn other essay styles and finally, how to write essay for specific purposes, such as university applications.

Students will be able to think of their own subject and choose a focus. They can develop this into a coherent, well-planned essay that the English speaker will find easy to follow. They will be able to do this in a wide range of academic styles and will be well-prepared for entry into an academic writing environment.

Upon successful completion of the Academic English Course, students may enter directly into Kapiolani Community College (KCC), part of the University of Hawaii College System without a TOEFL score.
