Historically Black Savannah State University in Georgia has announced the establishment of an English Language Institute as part of its International Education Center. Beginning in January, the English Language Institute will offer English classes for non-native speakers. The programs will be for nondegree-seeking students who will be encouraged to continue on to degree programs once they become proficient in the English language.
Instruction will be available in listening/speaking, grammar, reading, and computer-assisted language learning. Emmanuel Naniuzeyi, director of the university’s International Education Center, said that he hopes the new programs “will help internationalize our campus and foster greater understanding of diverse cultures.”
