EEP Program



Starting school year 2009-2010, Maryhill School of Theology (MST) launched a special English Enhancement Program (EEP) intended not only for current and prospective MST students, but also for international students seeking admission to colleges and universities and for individuals interested in creative and personalized English. The courses in this program aim to provide the participants an excellent opportunity to improve their English proficiency and to help them apply the conventions of the English language.

     The program offers an integrated and interactive curriculum designed to increase the participants’ abilities in the four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Its courses make use of intensive communicative activities and tasks that are meant to increase the participants’ confidence and comprehension levels, as well as improve their communication skills in social, academic and professional environment.
General English Course 1
This is intended for beginners. It aims to develop proficiency in the four language skills: lis­tening, speaking, reading and writing.  It applies language learning principles and communicative strategies to facilitate acquisition of the language in a variety of situations. 
General English Course 2
This enhances the skills acquired in General English Course 1 and provides additional skills necessary for social and academic situations.  It focuses on correctness in the use of the language in more intensive tasks.
English Enhancement Course 1 and 2
This is intended not only for students enrolled at MST but also for those who feel that additional work in English would be helpful prior to admission to a degree program.  It aims to provide the students with intensive activities and tasks in reading and writing to help them upgrade their skills to meet the demands of their academic courses.  This course, therefore, is specifically for those students who feel that additional work in English would be helpful prior to admission to a degree program.
