Abstract: The University of the South Pacific draws its students from one of the most linguistically diverse areas of the world. It is very much aware of the English language problems faced by its students who, on commencing tertiary studies, are required to deal with complex and linguistically challenging material and are often unable to do so competently. This paper looks at the linguistic background, difficulties and language needs of first year students, and the English language programmes that have been mounted to alleviate these problems. It evaluates these programmes, gauging their success in helping students bridge the gap from high school to tertiary studies, and considers additional measures that are required to improve the language support strategies currently in place.
