American Language Program


Due to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) concerns, currently the Intensive English Program classes are offered 100% online. All instruction are delivered through Zoom (a synchronous audio/video conferencing platform) that allows real-time interactions between an instructor and students from anywhere in the world. Classes are held in the evening 5:00-10:00 PM (Pacific Time) so it is in the morning for students in some countries.  

For Summer 2021, students studying online outside the U.S. will not be required a student (F-1) visa. Transfer students in the U.S. are welcome to apply and we'll issue an I-20.

For Fall 2021, we're planning to resume in-person/hybrid classses and issuing I-20s for students who need a student (F-1) visa to enter the U.S. For more information, please email us at
