2018 Pre-University Intensive English Program PIEP

2018 Pre-University Intensive English Program (PIEP)

Dates: August 20 – August 31 2018

The Pre-University Intensive English Program (PIEP) is the official beginning of all students’ academic careers at Wenzhou-Kean University.

PIEP is based on a 30 hour, intensive communicative-English program specifically designed to support Chinese high school graduates in their transition to an English-speaking academic community and English-medium courses.  Firmly grounded in Communicative and Participatory approaches to language learning, PIEP activates English language students have acquired in secondary studies and provides opportunities for practice in meaningful communication. A major goal is to enhance students’ comfort in communicating with faculty and each other in English.  The objectives of PIEP are to reduce student anxiety in interacting with faculty in English, enhance student comfort with the four skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) of English, and to accelerate the transition of prior academically-learned English into a functional, practical communicative capacity in English.  This is accomplished through a relaxed, friendly classroom environment in which the teacher facilitates English learning and fluency development by introducing games, group projects and activities which require students to collaborate in English communication.

 

PIEP Pair WorkStudents should not mistake the relaxed environment, games and collaborative activities of PIEP as trivial.  For many Chinese students PIEP is the first encounter with the state-of-the-art, theory-based approaches to language learning that have been empirically demonstrated to promote legitimate development of second language communication skills.  As a transnational partnership with an American curriculum, Wenzhou-Kean University expects and requires students to build fluency and accuracy in English communication.  PIEP is the beginning of this journey.

 

PIEP Dr. Gary LinebargerIn addition to the 30 hour intensive curriculum, students will participate in afternoon activities designed to both build English fluency and enhance fundamental academic skills.  Such activities include an MS Word workshop (introducing students to the free, web-based MS Word program and academic formatting conventions), a Dictionary workshop, and a singing room activity (enhancing pronunciation, intonation and rhythm in English through English songs).

Media Report: WKU’s PIEP made English-learning a happy thing

PIEP Tammy ClarkPIEP is a required, mandatory component of the Wenzhou-Kean University curriculum.  Students who fail to attend PIEP for any reason will be required to attend a communicative course in the evenings of Fall semester to make up these hours.  Students failing to fulfill these obligations will be referred to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs for appropriate action.

College of Liberal Arts

Dean’s Letter:

We Open Minds

“Liberal arts” is the term used most often to describe the dominant approach to higher education in America wherein the aim is to educate the “whole person” and students are expected to gain a deep understanding of a variety of disciplines beyond their major academic focus, as well as an appreciation of how these many disciplines inter-relate. Key to this approach are the “general education” requirements which insure that each student takes a broad range of specific courses as part of their graduation requirements. At Wenzhou-Kean University many of these courses are housed in the College of Liberal Arts. Subjects such as political science, communication, history, economics, philosophy and art history are not yet part of a major (with their own department) at WKU but serve the important function of helping students satisfy this graduation requirement. Read more

—Dean. Raquel A Stuart

The College of Liberal Arts aims to stimulate and develop students’ thought processes and intellectual capabilities, and increase their abilities to consider, compare and communicate within a broad range of disciplines, traditions and world-views. Liberal arts students are inquisitive and insightful, and share a rich cultural understanding of the world in which they live. The majors and various elective courses available in the College promote three elements essential for success in the job market of the 21st Century: creativity, critical thinking and communication. In a world where people change careers an average of five times or more, the adaptability gained through a liberal arts education is invaluable.

Two majors are currently available within the College of Liberal Arts: English in the Global Setting; and Psychology. A third major, Communication with a focus on Public Relations, will be offered soon, as we continue to add programs in the development of the College. Majors in the liberal arts generally allow more free electives than majors in other colleges, so Liberal Arts students have more freedom to choose courses to either specialize within their major or add other areas of specialization. In U.S. higher education, it is very common to pursue a “minor” that complements the major., with both appearing on your transcript at graduation. For instance, a student who wants to go into advertising as a career might do a major in English and a minor in Psychology. Students with major/minor combinations of this sort, designed for a particular career path, are appealing to both employers and graduate schools.
