MARIETTA, Ga. -- Chattahoochee Technical College will roll out a new program for non-native English-speaking students next month.

The Intensive English Program will feature classes in American culture and the English language, with a focus on grammar, writing, reading, speaking and listening. Students will learn in several environments, including a classroom, computer lab, library and from peer tutors.

"In the broad scope, the program will offer international students who currently attend or are interested in attending undergraduate programs in the United States the opportunity to improve their English language skills," Chattahoochee Tech ESL resource instructor Carol Glickman said in a statement.

Tuition for the Intensive English Program is $1,410 for full-time students, which includes 160 hours of instruction. There are also part-time options that cost $300 per class.

"In the past, (Chattahoochee Tech) has had to turn students away because their English skills were not at a level that would allow them to succeed," Greg Moor, the college's international services coordinator, said in a statement. "This program will be beneficial in not only teaching the vocabulary, but also the usage and integrating the students into the traditional American classroom. We'll be preparing them for success in college here at Chattahoochee Technical College or elsewhere."
