Student Experience

Learn More Than Just English

International students choose to study in the U.S. for many reasons — some want to improve their English proficiency, others seek to enroll in a degree program, and many just want to experience life on an American college campus. Global Launch provides a community that gives you the support you need and the opportunities necessary to achieve your goals, no matter what they are.

University preparation

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.

At Global Launch you go beyond standardized testing to give you the academic skills and university preparation you need to succeed at the university level. 

Cultural immersion

When you learn English at Arizona State University, you will be fully exposed to the English language and American culture every day and interact with ASU students, staff members and faculty. Phoenix is also a quick drive or flight to some of the most popular destinations in the U.S. like Las Vegas, Los Angeles, or San Francisco, providing further American cultural immersion.

Dedicated student support services

Global Launch offers our own full-time support staff dedicated to help you during your English language studies at Arizona State University. Our team is filled with many international students and professionals who understand your unique experience, and who provide more than 26 years of combined experience in immigration assistance, academic advising, tutoring services and more.

Connect Activities

Learning a new language can be difficult. Classroom learning can give you the skills you need to learn a new language, but you must practice using that language every day to help you build confidence and remember the language better. 

Global Launch’s Campus and Online Immersion programs provide more than 250 Connect Activities each year to help you use your language outside of the classroom every single day, build a community of friends and colleagues from around the world, and explore the beauty that Arizona has to offer.

Global Launch students who attend at least one Connect Activity a week are twice as likely to earn A’s and B’s in their classes.
