|Mastering a second language requires repeated practice over time.
Self-paced work can provide hours of practice to supplement ICC classwork.
During self-paced work, students can work at their own pace with a variety of materials. Self-paced work is intended both to supplement ICC classes and to provide the many hours of individual practice that are needed for improvement in a second language.

Our video library includes materials in the area of pronunciation, US classroom culture,
academic presentation skills, and job interviewing in the US.
We recommend that students look for online videos in their academic fields. In addition, the ICC can provide a list of recommended websites that can help students improve their command of academic English and US classroom culture.
