English for Professional Development

English for Professional Development is a new program for Washington DC professionals, designed to lead to improved advanced English communication in the workplace, utilizing a blended (online and face-to-face instruction) delivery mechanism for a flexible training cycle for working professionals.

The courses are modeled on the English for Heritage Language Speakers (EHLS) curriculum that the Georgetown University Center for Language Education and Development developed to improve the advanced English skills of naturalized U.S. citizens to the professional level.

The blended delivery instructional design combines classes at Georgetown with online delivery of key concepts and maximizes face-to-face class time for deeper engagement and collaborative learning. You will need to access information presented online to participate actively and fully in the face-to-face classes. The instructional cycle consists of online assignments and activities as preparation for collaborative projects and individual work in class, followed up with one-on-one feedback and support online and in class.
