Full-Time Intensive ESL In the Intensive English Language Institute’s full-time Intensive ESL Program, you will study English 4 to 20 hours per week to rapidly improve your fluency and competency. Our small classes have 5 to 15 students from a broad range of countries.Our Intensive Program offers 8 skill levels. Levels begin with students who have minimal English experience. Students with no English skills will be placed at the closest level. Fall and spring sessions are 14 weeks; summer sessions are 5 to 10 weeks.
During orientation, we give placement tests to determine the level that is most suitable for you. At the end of every semester, students receive evaluations for each class and certificates of achievement from Worcester State University.You will have many additional opportunities to practice your English. We offer individual tutoring and opportunities to meet with a U.S. friend through our Buddy Program.In the Buddy Program, volunteers from the Worcester community open their hearts and homes to IELI students for 1 to 3 hours a week. You’ll have the chance to learn about our culture and practice having conversations in English in informal settings while forming potentially lifelong friendships.
