Most schools only offer ESL. We aren’t like most schools. In addition to having three levels of ESL, we offer Skill Building and Academic ESL programs. These programs are excellent for students who are looking gain a higher level of education.
Helpful International Staffs
We know how difficult it is to apply to become an international student. Our admissions staff is highly trained in the F-1 process to help you from start to finish, from filling out paperwork, and scheduling classes.
Opportunity for Professional Experience
A fundamental component of our Skill Building Programs is for students to supplement classroom learning with externships. To do this, international students are issued work authorization through CPT (Curricular Practical Training).
There’s enough stress learning how to fit into a new culture. Finances shouldn’t add to it. To make life easier for our students, we try and keep our tuition affordable. ESL programs start at only $3,600 tuition for 33 weeks.
Multiple Locations – Chicago and Boston
We have campuses in two of the United States’ greatest cities. This offers students the ability to learn about American culture in ways that can’t be taught in the classroom.
Classroom environment is an important part of the learning process. We provide rooms large enough to comfortably accommodate our class sizes and equip them with up-to-date technology.
The Chicago, Charlestown, and Skokie campuses are accessible through public transit. Lombard and Worcester have student parking available. All campuses are within driving distance from the respective downtowns of Chicago and Boston.
