Asynchronous learning

Asynchronous lessons in Academic English Skills (AS) classes in the Pre-Master’s/Master’s Preparation Programs and the Reading, Writing, Grammar (RWG) classes in the Intensive English Program provide structured time on Fridays for students to apply learning or collaborate with classmates.

Online conversation groups
