Our program starts with an online placement course called American Academic English (here).

From this, you make a plan called English Language Goals.

Then enroll in the programs that will meet your goals through our EAPP program.

Finally, display your proficiency to employers and graduate schools through our English Language Passport system.

Please use the online forms to sign up for sessions.

The English Language Passport (ELP) is a unifying system that guides the students’ learning by setting language targets and documenting their progress.  Based on the Council of Europe’s European Language Portfolio, the ELP is an online portfolio of files that displays the English proficiency of the learner by linking documents that meet the language targets.  Similar European versions of this can be found at and 

The EAPP courses will help you make documents like the examples below to display to potential schools and employers: Example 1 and Example 2
