Comprehensive English Program

Comprehensive English Program

Comprehensive English Program

The Comprehensive English Program (CEP) is a full-time, English language and American culture program offered to non-native English-speaking students from very beginning (Levels Intro, 1, & 2) to very advanced (Levels 7, 8, & 9) levels of proficiency. CEP classes meet Monday through Thursday for about five hours of class each day.

At the beginning levels (Intro–2), all classes are taught as integrated language skills classes designed to provide a comprehensive English learning experience.

At the intermediate levels (3–6), instruction consists of two morning comprehensive core classes and two afternoon English enrichment and engagement classes. Both core courses integrate all English skills. At these levels, students select two types of afternoon enrichment and engagement classes. One offers focused practice on a specific language or academic skill, such as pronunciation, vocabulary development, and TOEFL prep. The other invites students to explore a topic of interest and to develop their linguistic and cultural fluency and confidence through engaging in the real use of English. Topics include American film, history of New York City, art appreciation, and business English.

At advanced levels (7-9), students complete their schedules with ALI electives, ALI advanced evening courses for specific purposes, or NYU School of Professional Studies career advancement courses. This flexibility allows advanced students to fine-tune their course selection to best suit their interests and needs.

Two new CEP tracks will be offered this fall!

For more information email ali@nyu.edu.

CEP TOEFL TRACK

This track is for high intermediate students who need to build the language skills, test taking strategies, and confidence required to succeed on the iBT TOEFL exam. Through practice questions and diagnostic tests, students gain confidence and improve their performance. Sessions take place in both classroom and language lab settings.


CEP BUSINESS TRACK

This track is designed to help high intermediate students develop leadership skills and improve their ability to communicate in both speaking and writing in professional business settings. Students learn skills for effective negotiating, giving business presentations, leading meetings, and professionally addressing a business audience through both speaking and writing.

ONLINE COURSES​:​ Innovative online courses in reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, and pronunciation are available to intermediate level students. ​Email ali@nyu.edu for ​registration information.
