Overview

"Are we doing all that we can to help prepare our learners for future study in the United States?" Dr. Orlando poses that question and more in this essential volume of the ELT in Context series. Drawing on more than 50 works published over the span of more than 20 years, she sheds light on the ongoing challenges that face intensive English programs (IEPs) in U.S. universities, including the marginalization of IEPs in the university setting, as well as the lack of understanding of the unique needs of staff and students. This book serves a wide range of readers, from those at the beginning of their professional lives as language teachers working in IEPs to those as new program managers. Experienced managers, administrative staff, and teachers will also benefit from Dr. Orlando's breadth and depth of experience.
