Available In The Following Areas of Focus:
The ESL/EFL program:
The ESL/EFL program a series of speaking intensive courses where majority of class-time focuses on real-life English practice. What makes our program unique is that we immediately begin practicing freshly acquired grammar skills and vocabulary in real time and relevant speaking situations. We never waste class time with worksheets or CDs – those are for additional practice at home. At LAIC, our teachers coach students every step of the way, correcting grammar and pronunciation as soon as mistakes happen. As a result, our students acquire good grammar habits and retain new vocabulary much faster than the conventional method and begin speaking in record time.
The world of Business Speaks its own language. That's why we offer specialized English Language courses for business professionals. Much like our ESL courses, the Business English program designed to give you maximum speaking practice in simulated, true-to-life business environments. Participants discuss meeting agendas, speculate profitability of various business scenarios, and brain storm about mock marketing campaigns.
All sessions are taught by teachers who have business training, or experience in the industry and use material that is current and relative to today's business professional.

Homestay program is your window to American Culture and Family Life! The Homestay program matches a student with an American family for an immersive cultural experience. During their stay, students get a close and personal look at American culture and local life style. They eat together, they shop together, and may even attend a family picnic or a holiday celebration. Many students also prefer a homestay arrangement because they find it highly useful in practicing their English skills outside of the classroom. Of course, the best part of it all is making friends that last a lifetime.
