The American Language Institute at Nazareth College provides excellent instruction in the four major components of language -- reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Pronunciation is emphasized. Classes are offered in six 8-week sessions. Each student is required to take 20 hours of classes each week. The 4-hour preparation class for the Test of English as a Foreign Language, TOEFL, is optional. Placement in the program is based on the Student Oral Language Observation Matrix, (SOLOM), and a writing sample. Students may be placed in beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels based on the results of this test. If necessary, Nazareth College is able to issue an "I-20" to obtain a student (F-1) visa. Passing the TOEFL and becoming a successful American university student is our ultimate goal for you.
