English skills quickly, so
that they can begin taking regular academic classes at either Spokane Falls
Community College or Spokane Community College. The IELP includes 4 levels with
integrated instruction in reading, vocabulary development, writing, research
techniques, grammar, listening, speaking and pronunciation in each class. All
instruction is by SFCC faculty, and all instructors have Masters degree or
The special English in Action course provides students with the opportunity to use English in exciting situations.
In this college-level class, students may create a film, a newsletter, a memory book, a business or a music website while
gaining valuable experiences both on and off campus.
Graduates of the Intensive English Language Program have gone on to participate in student government at the college and have been
accepted into Bachelor and Master’s degree programs at North American universities. Those who returned home after their ESL studies
have secured employment in their profession of choice.
