Classes and Student Services
All of our classes are taught by native English speakers and are centered around having average 5-6 students in class (a maximum of 8 per teacher). This allows our classes to be conversation-oriented, requiring active participation from all students and allowing teachers to provide immediate feedback. We also help students throughout their English language school process, from school applications to receiving F-1 visas and navigating local life. Last, the affordable tuition at AELS provides the most reasonable and economical choice for students, as compared to other academic institutions’ hefty tuition fees and medium to large class sizes.
AELS offers courses in ESL (English as a Second Language) and TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) preparation, Citizenship/Naturalization Test preparation, journal writing, book club, summer youth programs for international students, and more. Each quarter, we also host a Culture Week, where students will gain authentic speaking and listening experience through a discussion of American media and pop culture as well as personal experience garnered from guided field trips to local theaters, college campuses, local events, and museums.
