Hi, my boyfriend will be moving from Colombia to NC in 2 years and plans on applying to grad schools soon after. I am helping him look for a program where he can learn English (he speaks hardly any) and prepare for the GRE and TOEFL exams. I am looking for a program that is a year long (not 3 months or a summer). I am open to programs in any main city (Durham, Raleigh, Charlotte).

Thanks for the help!

Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte has an Adult ESL program

English as a Second Language (ESL) is an adult English language program for immigrants who have limited English proficiency. The Adult ESL Program provides instruction for adult English language learners to develop their English language literacy, life and work skills in order to achieve greater self-sufficiency and participation in American community life.

and an Academic ESL program

The Academic English as a Foreign Language curriculum prepares nonnative speakers of English to function successfully in institutions of higher education in the United States. Course work provides knowledge and practice of academic reading, grammar, listening/speaking and composition. Among other skills, students learn to make presentations to groups, write a research paper, and take notes from classroom lectures. Attention is also paid to the student’s cultural awareness, particularly that of the academic environment.
I don't know how long it takes to complete the classes.
