ILUNO Intensive English
New Intensive English (ILUNO) students collaborate with program instructors to evaluate their English ability and select language classes at one of five levels – beginning to advanced.
Experienced instructors teach reading and vocabulary, grammar and writing, listening, pronunciation, TOEFL preparation, and critical-thinking skills. Instructors are available daily to meet with students to discuss their class work, language skills, and future academic plans.
To provide a comprehensive, student-centered English as a second language program where students learn to communicate successfully in personal, professional, and academic environments.
The Bridge Program allows most undergraduate students with TOEFL scores of 48 or higher to take university coursework along with English as a Second Language classes.
The Advantage Track is offered to students who want to take undergraduate courses at UNO without taking the TOEFL.
Many ILUNO students, while lacking English proficiency, are otherwise qualified for undergraduate or graduate coursework. These students may receive Conditional Admission into academic programs at UNO. They know in advance that they can begin studies in a degree program immediately after completing ILUNO.
