Collaboration with Saint Louis University (USA)
USJ has been collaborating with Saint Louis University on the English program since 2014. Following a placement test that students take, this program has elaborate development and improvement modules that can be taken in the various USJ institutions.
Students enrolled in their first year at USJ are required to take a placement test to determine their English level. Depending on their results, they will be divided among the following five categories: E, D, C, B, or A.
The English development and improvement modules are part of the university curriculum and are offered in the various USJ institutions throughout the academic year, in between the 2 semesters, or during the summer at the institutions’ request.
The proficiency test is taken by students once they have completed the Level A English module. It consists of two parts (written and oral), and it measures students’ proficiency.
Following this test, students are divided into five categories, each of which identifies their strengths and weaknesses in the tested skill sets (written comprehension and oral and written expression).
The proficiency test categories are as follows: Advanced, Upper Intermediate, Intermediate, Lower Intermediate, and Basic. No student fails the proficiency test; he/she is simply placed in a different level, according to his/her English fluency.
