About the  Spring International Language Center - Fayetteville Center

  • Spring is a strong foundation in English. Accomplished instructors will help you to build a strong foundation in all the English language skills. You will study in interactive classes with teachers who have the education and training to teach English to international students. Instructors have master’s degrees in ESL, linguistics or related fields or specialized certificates in teaching English to speakers of other languages. In addition to years of teaching experience, many of instructors have studied and taught in other countries, so they are sensitive to cultural differences and understand the challenges involved in learning another language.
    Among the faculty members, you will meet excellent teachers who have won awards from their professional organizations, authors of textbooks in the English-language field, and active participants in professional organizations, such as TESOL International Association, NAFSA: Association of International Educators and English USA – the American Association of Intensive English Programs (AAIEP).
    The curriculum is designed for your success. Since 1979, the Spring International curriculum has been developed, evaluated, tested, and updated into a professional guide that assists students in learning the most English possible in the shortest period of time.
    The curriculum is divided into six levels of instruction, from beginning to advanced. Each level focuses on structure (grammar), reading, writing, and listening/speaking. Skills are coordinated rather teaching each one in isolation. A state-of-the-art computer lab offers programs to enhance skills in reading, spelling, grammar, and writing. Internet access is available to all students.

About the  University of Arkansas

  • Founded in 1871 as a land-grant college and state university, the University of Arkansas established its campus on a hilltop overlooking the Ozark Mountains. There were few facilities and little money that first academic year, but the eight students and three faculty members who gathered for classes in 1872 showed the same dedication to learning and commitment to excellence that has carried the University of Arkansas into the 21st century.
    More than 140 years later, the university’s enrollment is more than 26,000 and its students represent all 50 states and 120 countries. The university is the state’s foremost partner and resource for education and economic development. It serves as the major provider of graduate-level instruction in Arkansas. And its public service activities reach every county in Arkansas, throughout the nation, and around the world.
    - The University of Arkansas has about 3 miles of sidewalks imprinted with the names of graduates. To add your name to Senior Walk, it only takes another two inches (and four years of dedication for your college degree).
    - Bill and Hillary Clinton began their careers by teaching law at the University of Arkansas. Before she was a U.S. senator or the nation's secretary of state, Hillary founded the university's legal clinic.
    - The Fulbright Scholarship Program, the largest international exchange of scholars in the world, was created by J. William Fulbright, a graduate, former president of the university and the longest-serving chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
