Program details:




Group 1: Intensive English for Academic Purposes 


Description: Students in this zero-absence program develop balanced proficiency in the four major communicative skills—listening, reading, speaking, and writing—by thoroughly examining a common theme of topical importance from educational, political, and environmental perspectives during the seven-week summer session.

The program offers students opportunities to use English in a wide variety of academic contexts and to practice the methods that meet the classroom requirements of American universities: reading contemporary literature and journalism, including novels and data from several media sources; completing group and individual oral assignments that analyze and comment on many types of spoken and written English; writing research papers that follow the process method and appropriately incorporate Internet and print resources; and listening to lectures by Harvard faculty and engaging them in formal question-and-answer sessions.

The program’s weekly format involves small daily classes led by one instructor; three workshops comprising two of these classes that are team-taught by their two instructors; Tuesday site visits to locations related to the summer’s theme that alternate with level-wide lectures by Harvard faculty; and plenary lectures by Harvard faculty each Friday afternoon.

Housing: Harvard College dorms and Houses costs $5,100 for the seven-week session. This price includes 3 meals per day 7 days/7

Dining: The housing fee includes a meal plan. As an on-campus resident, you dine in Annenberg Hall and enjoy menus that reflect the international character of the Summer School.Meals are served three times a day, seven days a week, beginning with the evening meal on Saturday, June 22, and ending with the evening meal on Friday, August 9.

Group 2: Intensive English for Professional Purposes

Levels: C (high intermediate), D (advanced), and E (high advanced)

The seven-week program permits students to examine IEL’s summer theme, the Common Reading and Common Listening, and a wide variety of texts, in order to draw pertinent professional connections in several discussion and oral presentation formats; sharpen their writing skills in individual and group assignments that incorporate Internet and print resources; and negotiate the demands of research and practice in myriad contexts.
