Emphasis is on the segmental level: vowel/consonant work, syllable work and word stress as well as rhythm on the sentence level. Summarizing and questioning are practiced with work on learning styles. Students’ awareness of American teaching and cultural patterns are stressed. Observing American professors and students in class is encouraged. A student will receive a diagnostic assessment of her/his language segmental and suprasegmental difficulties from the instructor and will be expected to work on improvement in these speech areas both in the classroom and independently in the language laboratories. Successful completion (A- or higher) of the course leads to OAE 585; B+ or B leads to OAE 583; a B-necessitates repetition of this course. (Prerequisite: IELTS score of 5-6, or iBT score of 15-21)

The emphasis of this course is threefold: developing language skills, teaching skills and cultural awareness. Language skills will focus on sentence stress, phrasing, linking and pausing with field specific language practice. Teaching skills stressed include questioning techniques for discussion and assessment, leading effective discussions and assessing student learning. The cultural awareness focuses on idioms, American cultural values and norms as well as non-verbal communication. Successful completion of this course (B or higher) leads to OAE 585; a B- necessitates repetition of this course. (Prerequisites: an IELTS score of 6.0, or iBT score of 19-21)

This course further develops language skills at the suprasegmental level, teaching skills, cultural awareness and presentation skills. Intonation is taught with self-monitoring strategies.

Analysis of presentations is given to each student. Cultural awareness is centered on some assumptions affecting teaching in the American classroom. Successful completion of this course (a B or better) clears the student from the oral/aural OAE requirements. (Prerequisites: an IELTS score of 6.5-7, or iBT score of 22-24)

3.3. Graduate Intensive English Program

조건부 입학 전형은 학업적으로 SUNY Korea 대학원 프로그램에 입학할 자격이 있지만 전형에서 요구하는 영어실력에 도달하지 못한 학생에게 제공되는 프로그램입니다.

Conditional Admission is an option available to students who are academically qualified to be admitted to SUNY Korea graduate programs but have not reached the required level of English proficiency.

有条件的入学招考,虽然在学业上可以进入SUNY Korea研究生院项目的资格, 但向学生提供未达到相关英语能力的学生提供的项目。

석사과정의 학생들은 TOEFL 85점 이상의 성적을 제출하거나 IEP 과정의 고급 과정을 통과함으로써 입학에 필요한 영어성적에 관한 조건을 충족할 수 있습니다. 1년 이내 요구 사항을 충족하지 못할 경우 프로그램에 지속적으로 참여할 수 없습니다. 학생이 중급과정에 배치가 될 경우 영어성적에 관한 조건을 충족하기 위해 중급과정을 통과하고 고급과정 역시 성공적으로 통과하여야 합니다. 따라서 중급 과정의 학생들은 IEP 과정을 수료하는 데에 최소 2학기가 소요됩니다. 중급과정의 학생들 중 iBT TOEFL 성적 제출시 영어과정 조건이 충족됩니다. 학생들은 IEP 과정을 수강하면서 대학원 과정 중 한 과목만 수강 가능합니다.

For graduate students in a master’s program, the school requires them to demonstrate their proficiency in English either by taking the TOEFL and receiving a score of 85 or higher or by taking and passing the Intensive English Program (IEP). If they do not meet the requirement within a year, the students will not be allowed to continue in their program. Successful completion of the courses in the advanced level of the IEP clears the student from the English proficiency requirement. If students are placed in the intermediate level, they should pass the intermediate level courses to move to the advanced level, and pass the advanced level courses in order to meet the English requirement. Hence, it will take at least two semesters for the intermediate level students to complete the full IEP. However, students in the intermediate level may take the TOEFL iBT during or immediately after the intermediate level courses to meet the requirement earlier by obtaining a satisfactory TOEFL score. Students will be allowed to take only one course in their M.S. program while they are taking courses in the IEP.

硕士课程的学生须提交85分以上的成绩或通过IEP课程的高级课程,满足入学所需的英语成绩的必要条件。 如无法满足1年之内要求事项,则无法持续参与项目。 如果学生在中级课程中被安排,为了满足英语成绩,必须通过中级课程后获得高级课程,并成功通过高级课程。 因此,中级课程的学生在完成 IEP 课程的过程,至少需要2个学期。 为了使中级课程的学生具备更快的英语成绩,在学期中可以进行 iBT TOEFL 考试,并在完成中级课程时提交英语成绩时, 满足英语课程条件。学生们在听IEP课程时,还在研究生院课程中只能选修一门课程。

박사과정의 대학원 학생들은 IEP 과정을 수료해도 반드시 90점 이상의 TOEFL 성적을 제출해야 합니다. 1년 이내 요구 사항을 충족하기 못할 경우 프로그램에 지속적으로 참여할 수 없습니다. 학생들은 IEP 과정을 수강하는 동안 박사 과정 중 한 과목 또는 두 과목을 수강할 수 있습니다.

For graduate students in a doctoral program, completion of the courses in the advanced level of IEP does not necessarily clear students from the English proficiency requirement. They must demonstrate their proficiency in English by taking the TOEFL and receiving a score of 90 or higher while or after taking IEP. If they do not meet the requirement within a year, the students will not be allowed to continue in their program. Students will be allowed to take one or two courses in their PhD program while they are taking courses in the IEP.

攻读博士课程的研究生即使在读完IEP课程的过程,也必须提交90分以上的TOEFL成绩。 如无法满足1年之内要求事项,则无法持续参与项目。 学生在听IEP课过程中,可以选修博士课程中的一门课或两门课。

신입생 오리엔테이션 기간 중 조건부 입학생은 English Proficiency Test를 거쳐야 하며 시험의 결과에 따라 IEP 프로그램 중 중급 또는 고급 과정에 배치됩니다. 고급 과정의 모든 과정에서 B이상의 성적을 거둬야 영어 성적에 관한 조건이 충족됩니다.

The English Proficiency Test (EPT) will be required for all students with conditional admission during New Student Orientation and determine placement in the Intensive English Program (IEP). Depending on the EPT result, students will be placed either in the intermediate level or in the advanced level. Successful completion of the courses in the Advanced Level (a B or better from "all the courses") clears the student from the English (TOEFL) requirement.

新生入学说明会期间,需经过English Proficiency Test,并根据考试结果,被安排到在IEP项目中的中级或高级课程中。在高级课程的所有过程中,必须取得B以上的成绩,才能满足所要求的英语成绩的条件。

중급과정
중급과정에 배정된 학생은 모든 ESL 중급과정을 수강해야 하며 B학점 이상으로 모든 과정을 성공적으로 마쳐야 고급과정으로 진급이 가능합니다. 중급과정에 있는 학생들은 중급과정을 마치는 시점에 영어과정 조건을 충족하기 위해 iBT TOEFL 성적 제출이 가능합니다.

Intermediate Level
Students placed in this level are required to register for all the intermediate ESL courses described below. Successful completion of the courses in this level (a B or better from all the required courses) leads to the advanced level. Students in the intermediate level may take TOEFL iBT during or immediately after the IEP courses to meet the requirements within a semester by obtaining a satisfactory TOEFL score.

中级课程
被安排到中级课程中的学生必须选修所有ESL的中级课程,必须以B学分以上的学分完成所有课程,才能晋级到高级课程中。 在中级课程中的学生在完成中级课程时,为了满足英语课程的条件,可以提交iBT TOEFL的成绩。

The purpose of this course is to do intensive work in aural and oral language skills. Language skills will focus on segments (vowels/consonants), syllable structure, word stress, and rhythm on the sentence level. Summarizing and questioning are practiced with work on learning styles. Students’ awareness of American teaching and cultural patterns are stressed. The cultural awareness focuses on idioms, phrasal verb, American cultural values and norms as well as non-verbal communication. Students receive a diagnostic assessment of their language segmental and suprasegmental difficulties from an instructor and will be expected to work on improvement in these speech areas both in the classroom and independently.

This course will include workshops to develop students' oral communication skills, including their ability to make simple oral presentations, participate in face-to-face conversations on given topics and identify the main ideas and factual information in level-appropriate listening passages. Students will learn to recognize and use a variety of subtle language cues that native speakers of English employ in order to understand/express a person's intentions.

In this course, students will improve their reading comprehension skills and begin to learn how to write well-structured paragraphs. Specifically, students will review the basic principles of paragraph organization and essay structure, and learn to express ideas in sentences, paragraphs and essays. It strives to develop students’ writing skills through the use of the dictionary, practicing structures of written English, and learning to self-edit in preparation for advanced editing in the advanced level writing course. To accomplish these goals, students work on expanding their vocabulary through reading and use of the dictionary, work on strategies that promote independence and self-editing of their writing, complete many short writing assignments, and produce one longer revised essay. Emphasis is placed on reading and summarizing of text. The students prepare a portfolio of three pieces of writing from the semester that represent their best work in the class – one from their shorter paragraph assignments, one in-class reading and summarizing of text, and one longer essay that includes a summary of written text. Students will also develop their reading skills in the interpretation, analysis, summarizing, and criticism of ideas encountered in academic reading. A final exam is administered that is judged by a committee composed of ESL writing instructors. The final exam is an essay which requires a summary of written text, a response to a prompt, mastery of basic essay organization and the semester’s grammar work. The committee decides if the students possess the skills necessary to succeed in ESL 588.

This course begins with a review of simple sentence types, verb tense, and subject/verb agreement and introduces the students to a variety of higher-level grammatical constructions, with a particular focus on developing the students' ability to use simple, continuous and perfective forms; modal verbs; comparative constructions; plurality of nouns; articles; and quantifiers. Complex and compound sentences (including relative clauses and embedded questions), conditional forms, passive, gerunds, infinitives, and perfective forms with modal verbs are covered later on. This course refines the ability to produce acceptable academic English through intensive written and oral practice to promote accurate and appropriate language use for students who have studied grammar extensively.

Advanced Level

고급과정에 배정된 학생은 아래의 모든 고급과정을 수강해야 하며 전 과정을 B학점 이상의 성적으로 수료해야 영어과정의 조건이 충족됩니다.

Students placed in this level are required to register for all the advanced ESL courses described below. Successful completion of the courses in this level (a B or better from all the required courses) clears the student from the English requirements.


被分配到高级课程的学生必须选修以下所有高级课程,必须以B学分以上的成绩完成课程,才能满足英语课程所要求的条件。

The emphasis of this course is threefold: to further develop presenting skills, cultural awareness and improve the suprasegmental aspects of English. Intonation is taught with self-monitoring strategies and compensation skills. The presentation skills examine questions in detail, characteristics of good, rhetorical issues related to presentation development along with compensation strategies. The cultural awareness focuses on idioms, phrasal verbs, American cultural values and norms as well as non-verbal communication. 150 field specific vocabulary need to be pronounced with 95% accuracy. Video recording of presentation is examined.

This course also focuses on developing students' discussion and debate skills as well as listening comprehension. Students will understand main ideas and specific details of recorded passages on academic and general interest topics; take notes while listening and summarize the information orally; produce oral summaries of written material; prepare and deliver structured technology-assisted presentations on topics of general interest or a specific topic from their field; participate in group discussions and orally summarize the outcome, etc. A final presentation is evaluated and judged by a committee composed of IEP instructors. The committee decides if the students possess the skills necessary to pass this course.
Prerequisite: An appropriate EPT score or successful completion of the IEP intermediate level

The purpose of this course is to provide students with writing experiences designed to improve their essay writing skills through the process of prewriting, drafting, editing and revising. It also strives to build confidence, fluency and grammatical correctness in students’ writing. To accomplish these goals, students keep a journal, work on expanding their English competence on the sentence level, work on strategies that promote independence and self-evaluation of their own writing, complete many short writing assignments, and produce at least two longer revised essays and a short research paper. The longer essays emphasize summarizing and responding to written text and the use of learned rhetorical modes such as narration, persuasion and argumentation. Paraphrasing and usage of original language are emphasized. To work on a research paper, the whole procedure of writing a research paper will be reviewed: structure of a paper; compiling articles that students will use for their papers; taking effective notes; citing sources; and references. A portfolio of the final revised versions of these works is submitted with the final exam. A final exam is administered that is judged by a committee composed of ESL writing instructors. The final exam is a process writing assignment that includes a summary of written text and a response to a prompt that is related to that text. The committee decides if the students possess the skills to pass the course.

This course also provides separate grammar workshops. This session will promote accurate and appropriate language use in students’ writing. Students will review grammar skills, including verb tense, verb formation, subject/verb agreement, plurality of nouns, articles, etc. Complex and compound sentences will also be practiced using relative clauses, embedded questions, conditional forms, etc. Students also work on developing self-editing skills that enable students to express themselves accurately in writing.

우리의 최우선 순위는 IEC에서 제공하는 집중 영어 코스를 통해 학생들이 영어에 능숙해질 뿐만 아니라 국제적 감각을 지닌 학생으로서의 자질을 갖추게 하는것입니다.

Our main priority is to support our students’ language and cultural needs in acquiring the knowledge and language skills necessary to prepare them for intercultural communication. With exposure to the intensive English courses offered in the SUNY Korea IEC, students can become not only fluent in the English language but also mentally prepared for the challenges of being international students.

我们的首要课题是,让学生们为准备文化间交流所必需的语言和文化上的支援, 并通过由SUNY Korea IEC提供的集中英语课程,使学生不仅熟悉英语,还能具备渊博的国际感觉的学生素质。

When is orientation? Is it mandatory?
- IEC orientation is mandatory. Information on date and time will be in your welcome letter.

What will my level be?
- All students will take placement exams which measure their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.

Is it possible to move up in level during the IEC session?
- During the first week of the IEC session, if all instructors agree that a student has been misplaced, it is possible for students to move up or down a maximum of one level. After the first week it is impossible for students’ levels to be changed.

How long will I study in the IEC?
- Students usually take one level per 12 or 15 week session. Students who pass the advanced level (IEC 114) with a B or better are exempted from the English Proficiency Test.

What will happen if I pass the TOEFL while attending the IEC?
- If a student attains a score of 80 or higher on the TOEFL IBT (or an equivalent IELTS score), the student will matriculate only when they receive a passing grade of B or higher during the IEC session.

The class must be a 100-level course designed to help students with their English.

Is it mandatory to live on campus?
- Yes. The University requires all students to live on-campus in spring and fall sessions. During winter and summer sessions, the University allows students to live off-campus.
