The report describes the context for English language teaching in Ukraine, provides a case study on one intensive English program (IEP), and compares the program to an IEP in the United States. The first chapter discusses the circumstances of state-regulated and alternative English language programs, factors supporting English language teaching and learning, problems found in state-regulated programs, and the prospects for alternative program types. The second chapter outlines the theoretical foundations for designing an IEP for Ukraine, and the third describes one program, including three courses in the sequence. Outcomes of this program are detailed in the fourth chapter, noting the testing procedures used, selection of students for testing in this context, results, and students' evaluations of the program. The final chapter offers a comparison of the Ukrainian and American programs. Contains 166 references. (MSE)
