Experience a deep language immersion in our full-time intensive English program.
Our new, innovative programs connect the classroom to the real world, focusing on the English you will need to communicate effectively in academic, business, or personal settings. In our classes, we use up-to-date technology tools to talk about today’s news; help you write clear, organized emails and essays; and improve your comprehension of movies, conversations and lectures. Our methods – like our materials – are new and fresh, and will help you achieve your goals.
The Office of International Education fully supports and promotes the ongoing professional development of our faculty and staff in order to stay at the forefront of changing trends in the field of international education and the teaching of English as a second language.
Full-time students are eligible for I-20s. Our part-time program lets you choose one, two, or more classes per week. Our programs help you learn to communicate in the real world, whether your focus is on academic advancement, business success, or social situations.
The English Language Institute is dedicated to helping students after regular class times by offering many program extras, and our online application is available in multiple languages.
Our ESL courses reach beyond listening, speaking, reading and writing. They incorporate online activities, such as reading news articles, watching news reports, viewing YouTube and movie clips, writing e-mails and sharing opinions on a blog or social networking site.
