Our 12 Week Semester Programs are offered in the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. Our semester programs help students develop the skills, fluency, and confidence to communicate effectively in English. Students improve their overall abilities in both spoken and written English, as well as their understanding of U.S. culture. After completing the program, students will be better prepared to use English at work, in school, or among international friends. These programs consist of morning core classes and afternoon elective classes.
Our English Plus program enables students to combine advanced level English language preparation with a credit-bearing course in Boston University’s Metropolitan (MET) College. This 16-week program allows students with an advanced level of English to continue to develop their proficiency in one of CELOP’s core concentrations and apply their skills in one undergraduate course. MET offers undergraduate courses in a wide range of fields, such as math or science, the social sciences, or the humanities. This program is offered in the fall and spring semesters.
Our Pre-MBA English program has been developed in collaboration with Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. It is an intensive English program designed to prepare you for the rigors of a graduate business school environment. The program is open to those entering an MBA or graduate diploma program, as well as business professionals who plan to apply to an MBA program in the future. When registering for this program, you may enroll in the full 6-week program, consisting of three, 2-week modules, or you may select any two consecutive modules.
We invite students to improve their English skills before starting a professional graduate program in the United States by applying to one of our summer Professional Programs. We offer Legal English programs for LL.M. students as well as for practicing lawyers. We also offer Pre-MBA programs for students entering an MBA or graduate diploma program, as well as business professionals who plan to apply to an MBA program in the future. Our professional programs are only offered during the summer semester.
These classes focus on improving skills in all four areas – listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students will practice their conversational English and learn vocabulary for academic and social purposes. The 4-week and 6-week programs are only offered during the summer semester.
