ESL Program Introduction

UCAELI offers programs for both adults and younger students. The INTENSIVE ENGLISH PROGRAM - IEP is still the only university-based program in New England with full accreditation by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA). Providing our students with access to university resources is an important part of our mission as students live and study on the campus of the University of Connecticut. We offer 5 different levels of instruction and advanced students have the opportunity to audit university courses.

UCAELI's international Summer English Experience (SEE) is an ideal program for middle and high school students (ages 13 - 17) who want to study and experience English while learning about New England and U.S. Culture. The 3-week program is packed with trips and special activities designed to maximize English use in fun and meaningful ways. Our curriculum is truly unique, taking special advantage of the University of Connecticut's resources and location. Group discounts are available for 10 or more students.
