Customized English Programs

Customized Program

The American Language Institute at CSULB offers customized programs for specific groups that wish to improve their English skills for personal, academic, or professional reasons. These educational programs are custom designed to meet your student’s needs; coursework may include General English, Academic English, or English for specific purposes. For instance, we offer programs in English for Healthcare, English for Engineers, English for High School Teachers and Professors, and Practical English.  Students in custom programs can have their own group program or be integrated with other international students in certain programs. In either case, all students have the opportunity to integrate with international students from all over the world in our afternoon conversation labs and program activities.
