Intensive English Program

Students working together around a table

For over 40 years, our non-credit Intensive English Program (IEP) has helped English language learners, from high beginners to advanced, learn English to reach their academic, professional and personal goals.  Our IEP has been CEA accredited since December, 2001.

We designed our IEP to serve serious students, aged 17 and older. Our students come from over 25 different countries. They work closely together, and learn from their instructors and each other.

Our students:

  • participate actively in the classroom
  • study a challenging curriculum with regular homework
  • improve speaking, listening, reading and writing skills
  • have fun and make new friends from around the world

Our Intensive English Program has:

  • 5 levels of instruction, high beginning to advanced
    • Note: we run only levels 2-5 in the summer
  • 20-25 hours of class per week
  • 12 students in an average class
  • 100 students in an average session
  • One week of elective classes each session
    • Note: we do not include elective classes in online Intensive English courses.
