ESL Program Introduction
Goal Training Educational Center offers Intensive English courses, TOEFL test preparation, Business English and more.
Our special AmericanDiscovery Program brings together ideas from many academic fields and disciplines including, but not limited to: anthropology, art history, environmental studies, history, literature, economics, sociology and gender and ethnic studies. Class discussions raise questions about the American dream and about the lived experience of American democracy which has renewed relevance in the post 9/11 context. American Studies students also look outside of the classroom to answer these questions, by going on study-tours of sites of significance in the Chicagoland area.
