Academic English

Pathway Online

PATHWAY ONLINE is an academic English program designed for international students who need to improve their language skills in reading and writing
The program offers four five-week sessions per year: one in September, one in November, one in January, and one in March.

Who is the program for?

The program welcomes students from all countries and cultures. Pathway Online is for anyone who wants to improve their academic reading and writing skills. More precisely, it is for international students attending, or planning to attend an educational institution in the United States.

What are the classes like?

Online classes are taught similar to classes in a high school or college. Just like in a live class, students watch videos, read passages, take quizzes, and listen to their teacher. If they have questions or need help, their teacher is only a click away.

Each course builds on the previous course, so by the end of the program, students will be able to:

• Use approximately 200 new words
• Understand advanced sentences
• Read authentic passages
• Develop and write academic essays
• Understand English lectures
