Abstract:A few suggestions were offered in order to help make the intensive program more effective and responsive to learners' needs. A hybrid content-based curriculum model was offered as one way to integrate language and college courses. The model emphasizes integration by designing a core language course based on the content of introductory college courses. The second major component of the model is the academic skills course. It was argued that this course would help make academic skill instruction more effective. In addition, a credit-bearing university course was proposed to be offered in the intensive program. Finally, it was proposed that more cooperation is needed between the Language Center and college teachers in order to raise awareness about learners' needs.
