Customized Intensive English Program
Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning has more than 25 years experience developing and implementing customized programs for international participants. Spring Institute is an accredited organization and issues I-20s for qualified full-time international participants.
The Customized Intensive English Program is designed to meet the needs of each participant. The course is typically 9 weeks long. Individualized tutoring can also be arranged. Intensive English training with Spring Institute's experienced teachers provides a personalized learning experience for the participants. In addition, visits outside of the classroom to various businesses, educational, and cultural establishments help participants practice the English learned in the classroom. Previous clients have visited government officials, diplomats, professors, and businessmen in their related fields.
Spring Institute's Customized Intensive English Program offers high quality instruction and individual attention. In addition, tuition includes 23 hours a week of instruction, a textbook and personalized video work to improve pronunciation and increase fluency. Our participant-centered approach provides not just one teacher at the Spring Institute; the entire staff is here to help you reach your English language objectives.We recommend that people stay with a host family while studying in Colorado. This helps reinforce English language skills learned in the classroom and provides wonderful opportunities for participants to gain a deeper understanding of American culture. If interested, Spring Institute arranges for a host family. The monthly cost for the host family is $700/month.
