미국 UCLA 대학 여름 프로그램:Communication Skills Institute for International Students (CSIIS)
The Communication Skills Institute for International Students (CSIIS) will celebrate its ninth year this summer. Once again, we will be offering International Students a holistic program in acquiring English language skills and orientation to American culture. Comprised of two courses, Comm1A (Public Speaking for Nonnative Speakers) and Comm1B (Learning American English and Culture from Movies), CSIIS is designed to focus the educational potential of UCLA’s Department of Communication* and the cultural venues of Los Angeles into a comprehensive, effective, and enjoyable educational environment.

International Students, UCLA's Summer Sessions published some data that you may

Due to the cultural diversity represented by our participating students, an added benefit of our program has evolved. Not only are CSIIS students exposed to the intricacies of US language and culture through guided coursework and encounters with American students; they also interact with a diverse group of students from a wealth of other countries and cultures in our Comm1A and Comm1B classrooms. UCLA strives to create a nurturing and intellectually challenging environment geared to experience the rich diversity of people from many different cultural backgrounds. This is the essence of the UCLA and CSIIS experience. In addition, our students have increasingly indicated an interest in the Department of Communication as an exciting and cutting edge educational discipline that enables them to effectively understand and interact with a broad range of Americans.
