    I like the city of Newark. People are friendly. It’s not too big. And there’s no tax.

    What I most like about living in America is living in a small city like Newark and about the classes is that we have small classes which are super helpful with the learning of English.

    I like the kitchen class tutoring cluster. You can learn recipes and a lot of vocabulary. I can then try the recipes in my apartment.

    Levels & Tracks of Study

    Since 1979, the English Language Institute has offered a wide selection of courses to meet student goals, English proficiency levels, and schedules.

    Participants in the Intensive English Program (IEP) have many reasons to
    study English:

    • Students join the IEP to prepare for undergraduate or graduate studies at an American university;
    • Business professionals use IEP courses to improve their communication skills to enhance their careers;
    • General language learners study in the IEP in order to strengthen their English and foreign language-learning skills.

    My listening and speaking class helped me a lot with my pronunciation, vocabulary, note taking from the teacher, and speaking more easily with Americans. The teacher is very good, and I enjoyed his class. I think I am almost ready for the real thing, the University of Delaware.

    Each session provides students with 224+ hours (approximately 28 hours per week) of instruction in the classroom, in our laboratories, and in private tutoring meetings.


    Each student enrolls in two courses that fall into two categories: Listening/Speaking and Reading/Writing.


    Listening/Speaking Course

    Listening/speaking courses develop students’ language skills in areas such as:


    The courses use current, proven methods that help students use English in meaningful ways to communicate ideas and needs, solve problems, and participate in American life on campus and in the community. (10 hours per week)


    Reading/Writing Course

    Reading/writing courses develop students’ language skills in areas such as:


    Instruction integrates these skills to improve written communication and reading comprehension, using a progressively challenging curriculum from beginning to advanced levels. (10 hours per week)


    The ELI is one of the only Intensive English Programs in the United States to offer personal one-on-one tutoring with trained tutors in its regular Full Intensive Program. The student and tutor together make an instructional plan which might include help with class assignments, work

    on individual problems with or questions about English or American culture, or conversation skills practice.


    Students can choose private tutoring (2 hours per week), in which they work with one tutor alone or cluster tutoring (3 hours per week), in which three or four students meet with one tutor on a special topic, such as pronunciation or grammar for two hours and with a private tutor for one hour. (2-3 hours per week)

    Using a variety of video and audio materials the listening lab provides students additional practice with listening comprehension and vocabulary acquisition. (2 hours per week)

    Conditional

    If you are an excellent student, but you do not have a TOEFL score (or if your TOEFL score is low), you can still be accepted to several

    universities through the ELI’s Conditional Admissions Program (CAP)!


    Through CAP, the University of Delaware (and several partner universities) offers admission to qualified international students with a condition: they must first improve their English language skills by attending the ELI.

    Once CAP students meet the English language objectives required by their

    university programs, they begin their regular university coursework—and no TOEFL exam is required!*


    No TOEFL? No problem!

    Do not let your low TOEFL score stop you from applying to a university in the USA!
