School Introduction

POLY Languages Institute (for over 35 years) has assisted tens of thousand students from all over the world in their pursuit of the language proficiency needed for their educational goals, careers, and/or simply self-improvement. As the byproduct of our dedication and commitment to better educate and serve our students, we can assure our students with confidence that we are among the finest language training institutes.

POLY Languages Institute, Inc., founded in 1970, opened its first campus in Pasadena, CA and later added two additional campuses in Los Angeles, CA and Irvine, CA. Each campus enrolls about 150 students per session, many of whom transfer to colleges and universities upon completion of the POLY ESL program. Completion of the POLY ESL program is accepted in place of the TOEFL or other standardized English proficiency tests by many colleges and career schools.

ESL Program Introduction

We recognize that our students come from diverse cultures and academic backgrounds and that every student has different strengths and weaknesses, focuses and needs. Our curriculum therefore is structured into four distinct types of course:

* Reading and Writing - courses where students develop and sharpen their knowledge of English structure and grammar while practicing reading comprehension and developing their writing skills;
* Listening and Speaking - courses where the student will learn communicative functions that will help develop and sharpen their listening and conversational skills;
* Electives courses - where students may choose to study English Idioms or build their vocabulary;
* Test Preparation courses - where students may choose to study for the TOEFL, GMAT or GRE exams.
