To a majority of Chinese parents, US News and World Report’s annual college ranking represents the singel most important piece of information in deciding the future of their child’s education. Many fail to realize that even more important than “getting in” is to identify the university that is right for their child. Chances are slim that their first choice will be matched (Harvard, Princeton, Yale). And then, the scramble begins. EduGate offers programs where students learn as much about the application process, set achievable goals, and be ready for their first day.
EduGate, LLC. is proud to announce a custom English and College Preparation Program, offered at UC Davis. Proposed dates are July 6th – 26th, 2014.
This program consists of a series of daily English classes, afternoon workshops and activities focused on college preparation. The English classes for the program include Communication Skills, U.S. Society and Culture, and Everyday Expressions and Idioms. The focus of the Communication Skills class is to increase both the fluency and accuracy of the students’ speaking skills as well as to give the students opportunities to examine various conversation styles in different situations. In U.S. Society and Culture, students will learn about American attitudes, values, history, and popular culture in relation to their own culture. In the Everyday Expressions and Idioms class, students will learn many expressions and vocabulary used by Americans, especially in informal speech.
The primary goals for the program are:
- To offer the students a cross-cultural experience
- To enhance their knowledge and use of American English
- To enhance their knowledge of higher education in the United States
- To increase their basic knowledge of American culture
- To experience various sites within northern California of academic, historical and social significance
To further prepare them for undergraduate education in the U.S., the program includes a talk by UC Davis admissions, workshops on the college admissions process and preparation, U.S. College Study Skills course, SAT/TOEFL preparation workshops, and tours of UC Davis and Sacramento State campuses. The program concludes with a Certificate Ceremony.
