International Programs at HTIC offer customized intensive English language programs that include classes on reading, writing, grammar, conversation, public speaking, and presentation skills. These programs, specially tailored to meet the specific needs and English level of each individual group, also include classes on American and Hawaiian culture.

The length of IP programs ranges from a week to several months, when participants stay in the HTIC on-campus dormitory. IP’s small, interactive classes focus on group discussion to promote the development of students’ critical thinking and cross-cultural awareness as well as their English language skills. While studying in an IP program, students have the opportunity to experience American college life.

Field trips are an integral part of IP’s curriculum, enhancing the students’ studies with the opportunity to visit historic and culturally significant sites on the island of Oʻahu. International Programs’ students come from secondary schools, junior colleges and universities. A Certificate of Completion is awarded upon the successful conclusion of studies in an IP program.

If your organization/institution is interested in having a custom-designed program at HTIC, please contact interprog@tokai.edu
