Special Programs

In addition to the regular Intensive English Program available throughout the year at specific times, the English Language Institute offers highly flexible programs for groups at times that they find convenient. The ELI Special Programs are constructed according to needs expressed by universities or agencies organizing group visits. These programs follow academically strict but highly flexible guidelines established by the Institute.

Instruction

Programs may consist of standard courses in conversation, reading, writing, and grammar, or they may include an array of offerings that include but are not limited to:

  • English for Specific Purposes (examples: English for doctors, nurses and other health professionals, business English, legal terminology, technical writing for engineers, English for flight attendants)

  • Test-taking Strategies for SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, TOEIC

  • Accent Reduction

  • Introduction to American Culture

  • Professional Presentations

Flexible Program

Courses are designed upon request. Our goal is to design the program that can best fit your schedule. You need only inform us of your needs and we will formulate the program that is best suited to you.
