Academic Preparations Services

Basic knowledge of the English language is necessary to communicate in a conversational setting, but if you want to be successful at a top American university like Arizona State University, you will need to learn how to interact with your classmates, speak to your teachers, give presentations and more. Global Launch teaches the skills necessary to achieve success at the university level. In fact, students who study English at Global Launch earn a higher GPA than other first-time ASU international students.
