Most applicants to U.S. universities have had exposure to the English language. However, your basic comprehension and grammar may not be sufficient to apply to a U.S. university or college. Ask yourself if:
- You are able to read and comprehend most English texts
- You have a high level of grammatical competence in writing and speaking
- You have a strong command of vocabulary and functional language
- You can follow and understand lectures. If not, a boarding school ESL program would be ideal for you.
