University of Hawaii at Manoa

University of Hawaii English Language Program
Honolulu, Hawaii USA



School Introduction

Our program is housed on the Lower Campus of the University of Hawai`i at Manoa, the main campus of the UH system. Our open-air facilities, located in close proximity to the main sporting venues of the university, offer a comfortable and casual setting where students and teachers have ample opportunity to get to know each other. In addition to our classrooms, we have a Student Lounge where students can relax before, between and after classes, surf the Internet and read email from home, type and print homework assignments or just have lunch.

UH Manoa is a beautiful, middle-sized university with a multiethnic student and faculty population, world-renown graduate programs and professors. Once admitted to HELP, students have access to a full range of facilities at the University, including an extensive academic library (the best in the Pacific), sports facilities, and a variety of on-campus cafeterias and restaurants. Students who want to study at the University but need more English can be admitted to the University and HELP simultaneously (upon meeting certain requirements), and are given up to a year to reach the 500 minimum TOEFL score required to take regular university courses.

The University of Hawai’i at Manoa is located in Honolulu, a city where it is spring and summer all year round. Honolulu has excellent city beaches, and its residents enjoy a combination of urban and outdoor recreational activities.

ESL Program Introduction

HELP has a vibrant and innovative curriculum that reflects current
theories of language acquisition and teaching. We offer courses which, while primarily content-based, offer training in all skill areas - conversation, reading, and writing. The courses focus on a variety of high-interest topics, and target different aspects of language, including grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and idioms. Some of our recent courses have included Health and Fitness, Environmental Protection, Social Issues, Traveling around the World, English through Acting, English through Songs and Music, Grammar through Texts, and Creative Writing. In addition, for students interested in improving their TOEFL scores, HELP offers a full complement of TOEFL preparation classes, as well as administering the Institutional TOEFL each term.

HELP offers 10-week terms throughout the year. Courses begin in January, April, July, and October. Applications for admission should be received approximately one month before the beginning of the term
