Research shows that learning another language improves an individual’s brain power and social skills.  National development is also connected to English proficiency.

IELI’s General English program is for students who want to improve their language for personal growth, better professional opportunities, travel and social interaction.  Because students have different reasons for learning English, teachers work to provide a range of activities according to individual and group goals.

The General English course helps students acquire language structures and vocabulary through content discussions, reading and listening.  Students are challenged to develop both fluency and accuracy as well as cross cultural communication skills in the general English program.  At the upper level, students are challenged to extend the range and complexity of their language in order to reach the proficiency level.

Materials in the program may include TOEIC and Cambridge test practice if students request this practice.
