BEI’s Intensive English Programs
The Intensive English Program (IEP) is for students who want to improve their English-language skills for academic, business, and social success. BEI’s curriculum is designed to develop your whole-language experience. We integrate grammar, listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, idioms, pronunciation, and American culture. Our IEP is a 16 month long program, with seven start dates each year. Each cycle is 7 weeks. Our assessment will determine which level you begin with and you decide on how many levels are needed until you reach your English-language goal.
