What Makes Us Different

We have chapel once a week which helps with listening skills, and we offer a field trip or special activity each session to help students learn about the culture and practice their English. Our classes are small (never more than 15 students), and we have lower prices than most schools in Oklahoma with complementary textbooks provided at no extra cost. The average student improves 13 points on iBT TOEFL (30 points for paper-based TOEFL) each session. During Fall and Spring sessions, American University students often participate in our classes and visit for speaking opportunities once a week during lunch. ... [-]
