English schools in the USA and Canada
The English Language Institute (ELI) is a sub-unit of the Office of International Programs and Services (OIPS). ELI provides full-time instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), American Sign Language (ASL) and cultural studies to international deaf and hard of hearing adults. Intensive study, throughout the academic year (late August to mid-May), helps students become proficient in English in order to qualify for admission to Gallaudet or another university in the United States. This program also enhances their employment potential.
Gallaudet University is the world's only liberal arts university serving primarily deaf and hard of hearing students. Established in 1864, Gallaudet has grown from a small college to a multifaceted university and the world's greatest resource on deafness. Located in the heart of Washington DC, Gallaudet offers academic programs leading to undergraduate and graduate degrees in many fields.
