Customized Programs

The ELLP offers customized programs to cohorts of students from partner institutions in order to provide them with the opportunity to live in the U.S., study English at an American university, and experience American culture and university life.
A prospective group can choose from one of two options:
1) Semi-customized program, in which partner institution students enroll in standard ELLP courses and receive customized out-of-class academic support and cultural activities; or
2) Fully customized program, in which partner institution students take an exclusive combination of classes together, which may include a specialized, themed elective course such as Business English.
ELLP can provide short-term, semester or year-long content based courses. Specialized courses can focus on reading, writing, listening, speaking, pronunciation and subject-specific vocabulary. Programs are designed to fit the needs of students attending in a group.
  • Business English
    Develop English fluency and language skills
    through business content and communication
  • Legal English
    Focus on legal vocabulary, U.S. legal culture, and litigation
    skills while enhancing academic and professional English

  • Pre-Collegiate
