American National English Language Institute

Our History

In 2011, American National University’s English Language Institute (ELI) was created to suit the increasing language needs of international students who wished to obtain a degree from a university in the United States but whose mastery level of the English language jeopardized their personal goals.

In 2013, ANU’s ELI obtained programmatic accreditation allowing it to receive international students who searched for an English language program that would aid in enhancing their opportunities of being accepted by a university in the U.S.

Following along with the spirit which inspired the creation of American National University and its English Language Institute, in 2017 our English language Institute evolved to become American National English Language Institute (ANELI), obtaining institutional accreditation from the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA).

What this means for our international community is that our ANELI not only remains fully accredited to serve students and professionals wishing to master the English language in an all-English environment to pursue their personal goals of being admitted by a university in the U.S., but also to train and develop English language instructors with a 21st century methodology in the teaching of the English language allowing them to grow professionally wherever they choose to do so.
