Welcome to American National English Language Institute

Program Overview

The English as a Second Language program at American National English Language Institute contains six levels based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Each level is 10 weeks long and the program is designed to be completed in as little as 60 weeks. Classes meet weekly for 18 hours where students will gain understanding in grammar, reading skills, vocabulary and more.

During admission to the program students are required to take the CaMLA English Placement Test, which will determine the level of a student’s entry into our program. Students will progress from level to level based on class grades and successful passing of the CaMLA for that level.

Classes are delivered in one of two formats: The first is face-to-face instruction at one of American National Language Institute’s learning sites. The second format is through the University’s Global Learn Videoconferencing platform utilizing Zoom software.
