Learning English, Learning Culture
In today’s world, learning English creates more opportunity for people around the world. This is because improving English skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing impacts multiple areas such as work, communication, and relationships. In addition to these, learning English offers another benefit: learning about culture.
When a group of people travel outside of their home country, they experience a different culture by visiting new places, meeting new people, and discovering new ways to see life. In doing so, they become more aware of the world they live in. They learn how to lead and get involved in their community. They find innovative ways to make a difference at work, school, and home. Ultimately, as they learn more about the world they live in, they learn more about themselves. This is why the English Language Institute developed the English Immersion Program.
English Immersion Program
The English Immersion Program (EIP) gives students, professors, and professionals the opportunity to develop English skills as well as cultural competence. Weekly workshops and activities immerse participants in the English language, introduce participants to the culture of Springfield, Missouri, foster positive relationships, and develop skills in globalization, leadership, and communication.
