The University Bridge Program is designed for students who need practice and refinement of advanced grammatical, written, and oral skills in order to prepare to matriculate into a post-secondary institution. Module A1 is one of six rotating levels. The modules are thematically based and focus on research, advanced levels of grammatical structures, academic writing, and formal oral presentations. Successful completion of three modules meets the Oklahoma Board of Regents requirement for admission after achieving the minimum TOEFL requirements as required by all public Oklahoma universities.
In addition to the regular programs, many TLC centers offer special programs to meet your English-language needs. Some of these programs include:
Academic Test Preparation
Academic Test Preparation is designed to help students navigate the variety of testing requirements for admission to American universities, such as TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, iTEP and IELTS tests. Courses cover the following topics: advanced grammar and reading review, test question analysis, test-taking strategies, practice tests, and analysis of test results.
Many students who complete TLC’s Intensive Program choose to remain at TLC for further study of specific aspects of English. Many of these students are preparing for post-graduate study at an American university and would like to study more extensive English to prepare for their advanced or graduate study at the university. For these students, these TLC centers have designed their Advanced Proficiency Level courses to meet these needs and special requests.
