MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the WMCGW ESL program  is to provide a nurturing English learning experience which fosters confident interactions for everyday life.

WELCOME TO THE WMCGW ESL PROGRAM (WEP)

Thank you for your interest in the WMCGW ESL Program (WEP), an intensive English language program at the World Missions College of the Greater Washington (WMCGW). We are now preparing to begin the WEP in 2019. This WEP is going to be an SEVP-certified ESL program in Fairfax, Virginia, located just outside Washington, DC. WEP will provides an affordable education taught by fluent English instructors in small class sizes with a student-centered approach. We know that studying another language can be a challenging experience, especially as an adult. At WEP we help to make that experience more comfortable with a relaxed, friendly, and supportive classroom atmosphere.

English is the “Challenge” for our diverse group of students, representing approximately 10 countries. We value and respect each student’s language and culture, and promote the same for English and American culture, through sharing of ideas and experiences. Some of our instructors know other languages and WMCGW is primarily bilingual – English and Korean.

The majority of our students have F-1 visas; however, any eligible visa holder or resident is welcome to take classes. Our students’ goals vary from wanting to improve their communication for daily living in the U.S. to studying English to eventually transfer to degree programs. Whatever your reason, we hope LFI can meet your educational goals.

Note: Completion of the advanced levels of LFI serves as your proof of English skill for WMCGW degree programs. See Academics for more information about WMCGW's degree programs.



INTERNATIONAL F-1 STUDENTS ONLY


For F-1 students, your I-20 will be issued for approximately 24 months, depending on your start date. Taking two classes fulfills your minimum requirement of 18 hours/week to maintain your I-20. More information about applying to the college, obtaining your I-20, and registering for classes can be found in the International Student Handbook under Resources.
