Now Offering: Live, Instructor-led In-Person or Online Classes
Learn English in person or online from a live instructor using Zoom. Beginning June 29th ILI will resume in-person classes, but we are also committed to continuing an online option for participating. Those students who want to take the classes in person can come to the classrooms (maximum 6 per room to allow for social distancing) and those who want to study online can continue to join the class via Zoom. We will have a 360-degree camera in the room enabling online participants to feel part of the class. This hybrid class environment allows students to engage with each other and the instructor and to practice reading, writing, listening, and speaking the English Language.
6 levels, plus TOEFL test preparation
Evenings or Saturdays
ILI offers a semi-intensive program in English (ESL) in the evenings and on Saturdays for international visitors, professional and career development students, continuing education students, au pairs, and child care providers. There are six class levels, plus a TOEFL preparation class. Each English level in the evening is 12 weeks (24 weeks for TOEFL) and 20 weeks in the Saturday program (40 weeks for TOEFL). The complete TOEFL preparation course is two sessions, but students may not need all 24 (evening) or 40 (Saturday) weeks. Students work at gaining English proficiency so they can reach their own academic, professional, or personal goals. All levels include:
- Conversation and Speaking Activities
- Vocabulary Work

Students may enter the program at any time. A placement test allows us to place the student at the appropriate level.
