LA ORT College offers Intensive English Learning Opportunities addressing the specific needs of particular groups coming from abroad. Students will be placed according to their individual level in our current English course with other international students. The curriculum addresses all skills: Grammar, Listening/Speaking, Reading, and Writing. Classes meet 18 hours a week Monday through Thursday from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm. Students should expect an hour of required homework nightly.

LA ORT College offers all levels of IEP courses (beginner to high advanced) as well as content-based courses for those students with a high proficiency of English. On the beginners level students focus on communication skills, as well as reading and writing in English. As the levels progress, students are exposed to more advanced English. In our most advanced courses, students will attend content-based courses similar to those taken at a university.

In addition to attending existing courses, groups may choose to have courses customized to their students’ goals or interests. These special instruction sessions will be created and scheduled according to your institution’s specifications and budget allowing for more practice in English. Some examples of those courses may be:

  • Medical English
  • American Studies
  • Grammar through Editing
  • Academic English
  • TOEFL Preparation
