American Studies


American Studies offers advanced speakers insight into the crucial roles that culture and language play in the English language. Course emphasis includes pragmatics and nuances of the language, as well as culture-sensitive cues required for fluency. Students are prepared for standardized tests such as the TOEFL, SAT, and SSAT by introducing an abundance of new vocabulary and grammar points. 

Additional objectives include self-advocacy, appropriate conduct in the American classroom and study skills relevant to success in all courses. Students learn to “find their voices” in spoken and written English as they prepare for mainstream, college preparatory courses in American schools. 


The ESL program provides intensive preparation for challenging college preparatory coursework.  The program is uniquely focused to maximize readiness for mainstream placement in competitive independent schools.  TOEFL preparation is integrated into the curriculum.

Courses are offered at four levels:  beginning, intermediate, advanced intermediate and advanced.  Lower level students take courses in reading, writing and conversation.  At upper levels, students study literature, writing and a third course.  All classes include acquisition of academic vocabulary as well as analytical and critical thinking skills.

Daily grading and evaluation provide essential feedback.  Class size is limited to 4-6 students.
