Part of Virginia Tech Outreach and International Affairs, the institute has locations in Blacksburg at the main Virginia Tech campus, in the National Capital Region, and at Radford University.

There is no better way for you to improve your English language skills and experience American culture than through the LCI. You’ll meet dedicated faculty members who all hold master’s or doctoral degrees and certificates of advanced study. And you’ll study in a state-of-the-art computer lab and teaching facilities that will help bring your lessons to life and allow you to make rapid progress.
But we think you’ll learn so much more than just English at the LCI. Your time here will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. At our campuses in scenic Blacksburg, Radford, and the Washington, D.C. area, you’ll experience American culture both inside and outside the classroom while gaining the skills to help you achieve your academic, professional, or personal goals.
