The United States higher education system differs significantly from China’s high school education system. Education methods, education patterns, and administration are a few of these differences. College/university education in the United States emphasizes students’ critical and creative thinking, learning and teaching methods, and exam patterns. These are vastly different from a Chinese college education. Taking a college preparatory course in the English language will help students succeed and easily transition to degree programs at United States colleges and universities.

Hear from students who’ve completed LCU’s English Language Academy:
“The difference between LCU’s English Language Academy and other language programs is that we are not only focusing on enhancing English skills but also on helping students grow spiritually. When I saw how faculty and staff humbly serve us, I started to think again about what I should be as a Christian and then to pursue God’s will for me. In a year of study in ELA, I was not only sharply enhancing my English skills, but also growing up a lot spiritually as a Christian.” – Luyao (Ivy) Zhang, MA (Leadership Studies), class of 2016
