Language Skill Classes

For students enrolled in the regular IELI Program, the Institute provides ESL classes that seek to develop the four main language skills—reading, writing, listening and speaking—while practicing  grammar in context:


Academic Reading and Composition:

Students improve their ability to read academic English and learn new vocabulary from context.

Students also learn how to write sentences, paragraphs, and essays that are appropriate for academic study.

Classroom Listening and Speaking:

Students improve listening and speaking skills through directed listening, in-class discussions, and prepared presentations.

Contemporary Conversation & Language Focus:

Students improve fluency and pronunciation in a conversation course centered on contemporary topics.
Students review grammar concepts, vocabulary, phrasal verbs, and idiomatic phrases.



You may choose to attend one, two, and/or three of the classes listed above.

**Please note, if you are attending classes on an F-1 student visa, you are required to take all of the classes.**
