Our program emphasizes English proficiency in all skill and knowledge areas (speaking, listening, writing, reading and grammar) and provides students with an overview of American culture. Each level is typically 8 weeks in length and the tuition cost for one level is approximately $1,764 USD.

Students take classes Monday through Friday for four hours a day, a total of 21 hours per week for new students and 20 hours for returning students. Class schedules for in-person classes are usually scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. and then 2:30 to 3:20 p.m. For online classes, we'll schedule our classes around our students' time if possible. 

The average ESL class size is around 12 students, making it possible for students to receive personal attention from our instructors.
