Our Mission ICC Hawaii’s mission is to provide high quality instruction in English as a Second Language and other second languages. We help students meet all their language goals, be they academic, social or professional. As an extension of ICC’s commitment to quality instruction, we also provide training for ESL instructors, utilizing the best teaching methods and practices of ESL instruction.

A communicative approach to learning. The communicative approach is an interactive approach of teaching language that provides opportunities for students to engage in real-life communication and to communicate in meaningful ways about meaningful topics in a second language.

Tailoring academic programs to meet the individual needs of students, taking into consideration their unique goals, learning styles and abilities.

Providing curriculum, activities and housing options to help ease the transition in each student’s relocation process. ICC provides a warm, full-service support system to assist students with all their needs during their stay so they can experience the full enjoyment of Hawaii.

Promoting cultural understanding and appreciation through providing culturally oriented education and activities. Through these elements, students can gain a better understanding of U.S. culture and learn to fully appreciate the beauty, history and culture of Hawaii and its outdoor life.

Providing an intercultural experience through maintaining a diverse student body and maximizing student interaction with one another.

Assisting with transitions to academic institutions for those who wish to pursue higher education in the United States.
