Intensive English Language Center


Study English and Live the Language

For over 30 years the Intensive English Language Center (IELC) has been teaching students the English language skills needed to enroll in United States colleges and universities, as well as providing instruction to students wishing to improve their general English ability for professional or personal reasons.

The IELC offers a full-time English program, with 20 class hours per week. Students may select from six levels of instruction, from beginning to graduate studies, with programs available in 5-, 8-, 10- and 16-week formats.
