ABSTRACT
This paper outlines an intensive English-medium Economics program which was established to facilitate the development of various skills and knowledge needed for students to achieve their goal of being successful members of the international academic and business community. The three-year content and language integrated learning (CLIL) program not only provides students with the opportunity to take English-medium economic classes, but through a series of English for academic purposes (EAP) adjunct classes and study abroad opportunities, systematically builds their EFL skills. The skills developed allow students to better understand the English-medium lectures, actively participate in academic discourses, and provide them with a host of useful skills for their future international studies or employment.
