If you are interested in improving your English language skills, join our ESL program.
Students attend 21 hours of class per week and focus on writing & grammar, reading & vocabulary, oral communication, TOEFL iBT preparation, and specific relevant content areas such as intercultural communication, career exploration, American culture & politics, and media & digital literacy. If you plan to attend college in the United States, English for academic purposes courses will prepare you for the American university classroom. For students pursuing English for professional reasons, advanced-level electives focus on the language skills and strategies that will help you succeed in your career.
Our mission is to create an innovative learning environment where students work collaboratively on meaningful tasks. Building academic, intercultural and language skills, students gain the knowledge, learning strategies and confidence necessary to achieve their own goals in the classroom and beyond.
The Institute also provides specialized programs tailored to students’ needs. Our Custom Language Services (CLS) design small group and one-one-one language instruction for diplomats, executives, and international travelers. We also offer study abroad programs for groups of 20 or more. For more information on bringing a group to Monterey, contact us.
