Popular questions to study a language

What type of English course should I choose?

A long-term program is the best choice if you have a lower English level. We offer Academic Semester or Academic Year courses which cover 2 or 3 language levels.

If you do not have much time or want to study quickly, consider an Intensive English course.

Take a Vacation English course if you do not have time to apply for a student visa to the USA or UK, or would like a light workload

For a more career-focused course, take one of our Business English courses.

For those interested in enrolling for college credit in the USA, we offer university foundation courses in Seattle and Irvine, California. After taking a 12-week foundation course, you have the opportunity to transfer into the school.

Is taking an English course abroad better for my career options?

Yes! You will benefit from an educational and networking experience in a foreign culture. You will also meet people from different backgrounds and improve your conversation skills.
