Class Description


What you'll learn in this intensive esl class:

Offered at all levels, Intensive English Program (IEP) emphasizes speaking, listening, reading, and writing comprehension for individuals, diplomats, business professionals and university students who must improve their skills for work, internship, or university study. Incoming students are given a placement test to determine their entry level; English is the only language used in the classroom.

Our ESL program goes beyond our classroom doors. We provide students with information on housing solutions to help them settle into Washington, DC and excursions to museums, outdoor activities, shops, and restaurants to help them become more confident in their conversational skills.

Because we are authorized under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students, students on an F-1 visa will maintain their student status when they enroll with us.

Key Benefits:
  • Diverse student body, on average we have students join us from over 45 different countries each year
  • Four classes daily, each with a different highly-skilled teacher, allow for well-rounded curriculum
  • Small class sizes, with an average of 7-8 students per class
  • Emphasis is on understanding and speaking like native English speakers
  • Weekly activities and field trips allow students to practice their English and explore the D.C. Metro area
Registration fee is non-refundable. We reserves the right to cancel a class due to lack of enrollment. In the case of lack of enrollment, the registration fee will be refunded. 

In the event an applicant does not meet the proficiency requirement for a given course, the applicant has the option to have the registration fee applied toward another course or refunded.

There will be additional $55-$100 materials fee per session.

Registration Fee included.

Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students in the Intensive English Program at ICLS have described the classes as highly effective and well-organized. The curriculum is accelerated and focuses on assimilating students into the target language. The teachers at the center are praised for their high caliber and ability to make the learning process enjoyable. Additionally, the teachers have backgrounds working in various countries, allowing them to better understand the initial problems students may face. Students appreciate that they have four different teachers during their four-hour classes, as it provides a unique advantage. Students not only work hard but also have fun, with laughter being a common occurrence in class. The facilities, including the rest areas and computer lab, are well-equipped and students can also enjoy multiple field trips in the DC area. Overall, students are grateful to ICLS for their great work and happy 50th anniversary. Direct quotes: - "Their curriculum is not only accelerated but most effective in assimilating the person in the target language being taught." - "Our professor holds the highest credentials and is absolutely wonderful to learn from. She is a wealth of knowledge!" - "All students obviously enjoy their time in ICLS. Everybody is laughing a lot during the classes."
