Gould’s 英语学习课程, which is designed to support and promote the development of English as a second or third (or fourth) language, is a vital piece of the 国际项目. The 英语学习课程 emphasizes reading and writing academic English, as well as conversational English, and most of our international students participate at some level.
A truly global community is vibrant, diverse, and synergetic. It is an ideal educational environment. To ensure that Gould lives up to this potential, the 国际项目 also focuses on faculty development. Our faculty and staff understand that cultural differences exist and work to address, 庆祝, and include this diversity in the classroom and in all aspects of Gould life.
A global community is also dynamic, and so is our 国际项目. We offer a comprehensive orientation upon arrival at Gould and informative meetings for international students throughout the school year.
The International Studies Program not only helps international families understand what it means to be a part of Gould’s community – within the Bethel community, and within the United States community – it offers assistance with visas and other documentation, 健康保险, 运输, 旅行安排, 学术位置, 课程修改, 和更多的. The program’s role is that of a problem solver. Sometimes, that means tracking down a SIM card or arranging a ride to a college interview. International students at Gould are welcomed as part of our family and we do everything in our power to help them succeed.
“The program helps international students make the most of Gould, both in terms of what they get out of it and what they put into it,” says Program Advisor 彼得 摩西, who directs the ESP and spent many years living abroad.
