UC Berkeley highlights

Redwing students will learn English via our unique interactive online platform, with General English lessons in the morning, followed by focused UniLife modules to enhance learning and understanding. As well as ensuring that our students develop their English language skills, we also understand the need for our students to develop their own personalities, make new friends, and to enjoy being immersed in American culture. That is why we have such a rich and varied programme outside of the classroom.


Redwing online platform.
