The American Language Institute offers intensive English programs for international students preparing for graduate or undergraduate studies, or who wish to further investigate the English-speaking world.

Program Overview

Students enrolled in our program receive intensive instruction in the four components of language: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.  Classes are offered both in summer sessions and the fall semester, during which students are in classes for 20 hours/week.
