Intensive English courses

Make a concrete investment in your future by taking an intensive English course in one of our schools in the USA. This is our most popular course because it offers the highest return on your investment in terms of both time and money. Our intensive English courses are some of the most flexible courses we offer. They are available in every school in the USA starting on any Monday throughout the year. You can start from a true beginner level, or any other level up to advanced, and study for any duration.

These intensive English courses are also highly customizable because 10 of your weekly English lessons will be workshops on subjects of your own choosing. You can select these sessions from the workshop calendar specific to your school. Total instruction time on the intensive English course is 21 hours and 20 minutes per week scheduled on weekday mornings and afternoons.

If you are already studying in the USA and would be interested in transferring from your current program to an intensive English course in one of our schools, get in touch. Extending or transferring your I-20 visa is easier than you think!
