Tallenglish College Prep 

Designed to develop English skills for those pursuing higher education in an English-speaking university, College Prep or Academic English includes the specialized grammar and vocabulary necessary for academic success including a large number of words from the academic word list.

The course is based on the blended-learning TALL model, meaning that the students’ time is divided between classroom activities with a teacher and peers and individual activities on a computer. Upon successful completion of Tallenglish College Prep, learners develop essential academic language skills, such as note-taking, critical thinking and understanding university-level lectures.

Six main skills are emphasized in Tallenglish College Prep: 

  • Reading comprehension
  • Speed reading
  • Listening comprehension
