Comprehensive academic language preparation gives students skills, contacts, and experiences which help them enter their university of choice. Classes are communicative, integrating all language skills, and are taught at all levels, from high-beginning to advanced. There are 20 instructional hours per week, supplemented by homework assignments. Cultural activities and speakers are added to expand each student's ability to use English in a variety of situations.

Students may also start the IELP at the beginning of a four-week session.
