Intensive English Course
The goal of our Intensive English Course is to develop your ability to communicate and express ideas clearly and accurately. We will help you speak with confidence and develop a more productive work relationship with colleagues and customers.
Our Blue Ash, Ohio location, in the Heart of America, guarantees that you will be completely immersed in accent-free, pure English, with many opportunities outside of class to hear and speak English, as well as observe American customs and culture.
