“New term has started!”(+)
On Monday, April 8th, UMC held its annual beginning of the term general assembly. During the assembly students were informed of the many new changes that were taking place, and the fun new activities that were available for them to participate in. UMC has now officially switched from having 6 levels of ESL to 9 levels. This change was made to better accommodate student needs. From now on, students will have an opportunity to move up to the next level every 4 weeks rather than 8.
Another exciting change that has been made are the afternoon elective classes that students have the ability to choose depending on their program. These specialized classes are 90 minutes long and are specially designed to developed particular speaking skills. Some of the innovative classes that are now being offered include: Start Speaking, Make Conversation, Speaking Professionally, English for Marketing, Dynamic Power Speaking, Teaching English for Young Learners, and CILISAT Prep to name a few. These classes will definitely make studying at UMC even more appealing and fun.n.

UMC Student´s Voice(+)Student full name: Monique MilordProgram name: ESL level 3Duration: 12 weeksCountry: Panama
"At UMC, the classes are fun, and all the teachers are extremely patient. They are many different activities to help students integrate with one another.. Teachers are kind and friendly. I like them all, but my favorites would have to be Stacy and Mellissa. The staff are always willing to help, and I’ve especially appreciated Lucia and Justin for their help. UMC helped me improve my English; I am no longer shy when it comes to talking to people, and now I can make friends easier. These skills will help me in my major; I have gained skills to work well with people from different cultures as my English has improved. My UMC experience has taught me a lot, and I know when I go back to my country it will greatly help me find a good job."
