Inter­na­tional Eng­lish Lan­guage Insti­tute (IELI)

The IELI facil­i­tates the tran­si­tion from an inten­sive lan­guage pro­gram to aca­d­e­mic pro­grams by offer­ing instruc­tion in Eng­lish for aca­d­e­mic pur­poses in all core skill areas: gram­mar, writ­ing, read­ing, lis­ten­ing and speak­ing.  Stu­dents also have the oppor­tu­nity to take sev­eral courses that focus on a vari­ety of top­ics and skill areas.  More infor­ma­tion about these classes can be found in Course Descrip­tions.  These courses help stu­dents become famil­iar with Amer­i­can cul­ture and the higher edu­ca­tion system.

The IELI offers:
  • A safe, beau­ti­ful loca­tion in a friendly uni­ver­sity town where you can walk or bicy­cle eas­ily to campus
  •  Home­s­tays with Amer­i­can families
  •  Access to a wide range of cul­tural and recre­ational activ­i­ties in the community
  •  Orga­nized trips to local attrac­tions and neigh­bor­ing big cities, such as Port­land and San Francisco
  •  Small classes with friendly, ded­i­cated teachers
  •  A Bridge Pro­gram which allows eli­gi­ble stu­dents to attend a class at the university
  •  Use of cam­pus facil­i­ties, such as the library, health cen­ter, sports facil­i­ties, and com­puter labs
  •  Con­di­tional admis­sion to HSU
