Maryville College ESL Program staff will work closely with you to develop a program that satisfies your specific academic and programming requirements - including curriculum, complementary cultural activities, and comprehensive support services.   Programs generally range from two to five-weeks in duration.

· Practice listening and speaking skills with native speakers through conversation practice and classroom discussions.

· Increase their English vocabulary in a real-life setting

· Improve reading comprehension

· Develop English writing, public speaking and presentation skills

· Use English skills with people from a variety of language backgrounds and cultures.

· Learn about local history and culture.

· Visit tourist attractions in the nearby area.

· Experience new outdoors activities in the Great Smoky Mountains and local rivers.
