On June 1, 2017, Yuni Nguyen, President of the American Language Academy, met with Professor Tao Yu, Dean of the International Education Department at the Zhejiang Institute of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering (ZIME) and Dr. Susan Jagendorf-Sobierski, Executive Director of International Education at SUNY Cobleskill . The three educators discussed the potential for the American Language Academy to assist the two universities as they prepare students to maximize their level of English language knowledge. ZIME’s and SUNY’s Path Pro Program offers Chinese students a range of options for academic and career development beyond the vocational education students receive in China. Path Pro provides those students with accredited outcomes that will be recognized by 4-year U.S. universities and colleges toward bachelor degrees.
ALA’s Intensive English Program serves as a bridge spanning the first two years of an undergraduate dual degree program between the native country school and the last two years at an American institution. We ensure that students have both the requisite language and academic skills.
