As a student in our Bridge Pathways Academic English program at Jefferson (Philadelphia University and Thomas Jefferson University), you'll acquire the necessary English language skills to succeed in an academic environment. Our curriculum is designed to help you develop your English proficiency in the four communicative skills— reading, writing, speaking, and listening— while strengthening your study skills and strategies.
You'll learn quickly from the communicative and student-centered approach in all of our classes. You'll be expected to actively participate in activities, discussions, and projects. We encourage our students to constantly practice English while undertaking various academic tasks.
As a BridgePathways student, you'll participate in essential social and cultural immersion experiences to help you become comfortable with living and actively participating in U.S. campus and community environments.
You'll study a different theme each week. Themes are related to common areas of undergraduate study and will unify all of your classes. This thematic approach allows you to develop both linguistic skills and content knowledge.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
