Koby Language Center

Ann Arbor, Michigan USA



School Introduction

Koby Language Center is located in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan, a culturally diverse and lively community. We are in the midst of the University of Michigan campus area, with Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti close enough to ride to via city bus. KLC features small class sizes that enable students to receive more individualized attention. Study academic English for university entrance, practice for the TOEFL and TOEIC exams, or learn English for everyday life or business settings.

ESL Program Introduction

Koby Language Center offers a flexible academic-focused intensive English program that allows you to choose whether you would like to study five days each week, or enroll part-time and have classes only two or three days per week. We also offer test preparation classes in TOEFL and TOEIC. In addition to academic English, we offer English for daily living, colloquial English, and a business English program. Our courses are ongoing, with starting dates every 4 weeks. You may study as little as 4 weeks or as many sessions as you would like, without repeating course material (except TOEFL/TOEIC--material is repeated). A personalized English program is available for specific goals and scheduling requirements. We also offer classes in beginning Japanese, and have Japanese and ESL programs for children.

Housing/Accommodation Info

In many American cities, especially smaller ones, there is little public transportation, making it difficult for someone with no car to find a place to live. Ann Arbor, a city of 110, 000 people, has an excellent public transportation system, so the student who has no car can have many more housing choices than in most small American cities.
