Intensive American English Programs

About the Programs

The Intensive English Programs are designed for those who wish to improve their English in a short period of time. With a minimum of four and a maximum of twelve students per class, students have the benefit of practicing their spoken English skills in a small group environment.


At The Boston Language Institute, we employ the most modern methods in the field of language acquisition. The Intensive English courses are taught using the Communicative Method, which views each aspect of language learning -- grammar, conversation, reading and writing -- as a necessary support for the others. Students learn new vocabulary and grammar while enhancing their English communication skills in a discussion-based class. Class themes focus on high-interest topics, American Culture, and current events which present language in context and encourage critical thinking. Writing assignments are often given in Intensive English classes as homework to further build language competence.



The Intensive American English program meets daily. Students can choose from the morning, afternoon and full-day sessions. New programs begin every Monday, and students can register by the month or weekly.

  • Intensive Morning (Integrated English skills) classes meet Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
