Executive English Program (EEP)
This three-week course is designed for busy executives and career professionals whose schedules do not permit them to participate in the Institute’s traditional program of study. The program offers language instruction targeted to the client’s linguistic and professional needs and includes a combination of individual and class instruction. The goal is to develop the participant’s English competency specifically for their personal and professional needs.
Program components include instruction by experienced corporate ESL trainers and faculty consisting of:
- Private tutoring (one-on-one instruction): 8 hours per week
- Classroom instruction: 20 hours per week
- Self-Access-Learning-Center (multi-media) activities: 3 hours per week
- Visits to area corporations and businesses
- Cultural program based on client interest
Total hours of instruction for three-week program: 93
Courses develop listening, speaking, and pronunciation abilities through pair and group activities with other English language learners. Clients will have the opportunity to learn English with other learners from all parts of the globe. The tutoring sessions are designed to reflect the individual professional language needs and objectives of executives and professionals such as leading meetings, conducting negotiations, networking, interviewing, team problem solving, making presentations and speeches, and engaging in cross-cultural business and discourse. For these private tutoring sessions, ELI’s specialized corporate ESL tutors are experienced in providing one-on-one, personalized instruction based on each client’s linguistic needs and goals.
Clients in the Executive English Program may stay in the homes of families whose members are either practicing or retired professionals themselves. A meal plan of two meals per day (breakfast and dinner) is available. The arrangement will provide both language reinforcement and stimulating companionship.
Alternatively, clients may request to live in the University’s Innternationale House, designed to host visiting dignitaries, scholars, and professionals from around the world. (see www.TheINNternationale.org) Finally, clients may choose extended-stay suites in nearby hotels participating in the program. A meal plan for the university’s dining facilities is also available for either housing arrangement.
The program provides the opportunity for clients to visit local corporations and businesses to meet with other professionals.
A cultural program will be designed with input from each client prior to his or her arrival. Excursions would include trips to local historical sites, with the option for trips to major regional cities like New York City, Washington DC, or Philadelphia.
This program is available six times throughout the year (July, September, November, January, March, and May). Flexible scheduling is permitted.
