We have 12-week intensive programs in the Fall, Spring and Summer. These programs help students of all levels develop the vocabulary, fluency, and confidence to communicate effectively in English. Courses offer opportunities to improve both spoken and written English, and learn about U.S. culture. 
The combination of morning core classes and afternoon elective classes give students chances to both strengthen their academic English and practice communicating outside classroom.

Every week you will use your English to:
Participate in discussions
Read, discuss and, write about current topics
Work with classmates on group projects
Learn about U.S. culture
Prepare oral presentations on topics of interest

Six-week intensive program

We offer six-week intensive programs beginning in October, February, July, for students who cannot come to the US for 12 weeks or are not able to arrive at the beginning of the semester, 
Students in these programs develop the vocabulary, fluency, and confidence to communicate effectively in English through a combination of morning core classes and afternoon elective classes.

Two week special intensive courses

Our two-week special intensive courses offer students a chance to focus on a particular topic such as academic preparation, English through stories, or historic New England. Special intensive courses meet 5 mornings a week so students have time to explore the Salem and Boston area.

Groups which are interested in coming to the US for a short-term program can contact us to request special intensive courses to meet their needs and interests.
