The primary task of the School of Foreign Languages is to support those undergraduate and graduate students whose foreign language competency is not adequate to meet the foreign language demands of the IMU curriculum. The English Department was initially established for this purpose and 20 lecturers are currently on staff. Students wishing to attend classes in English, but whose English is not yet proficient, will be required to take Basic English classes from the prep school.
Our mission is to support the intellectual development and self esteem of our students. The School of Foreign Languages produces individuals who are aware of their responsibilities, who are focused on solutions, and who are able to communicate effectively in their social, academic and professional lives, especially where academic English is required.
Our vision is to foster and maintain an educational environment focused on our students’ social and academic development; an environment which also supports the professional development of its instructors with the most up-to-date best practices for teaching world languages..
