Short Term Programs USA

Can’t get away for a whole school year? IQ USA short term programs are the perfect solution!


English Cultural Immersion

Adventurous young people can focus on improving their English language skills while developing friendships with American students and other international travelers. IQ’s ECI program is a great and inexpensive way to introduce students to our full range of longer term programs. Students live with a host family, attend ESL courses in the morning and observe the American classroom in the afternoon. Enrollment dates follow the American school year for groups of 15 or more.


Homestay Immersion

An affordable program designed for self-motivated, mature students who want to truly immerse themselves in American culture and the English language. Students arrive on a tourist visa and live with an American host family for a period of time that works with their own summer schedule. Organized activities are not offered in this program, we encourage students to create their own experiences by engaging with American students via extra-curricular activities, sports and youth groups. Students with a sincere interest in cultural exchange are encouraged to apply!
