English schools in the USA and Canada
The Cal Poly English Language Institute (CPELI) specializes in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) instruction and in academic preparation for international students who plan to continue their higher education in the United States. Our ESL program consists of five levels of instruction, from beginner to advanced. The courses are designed to develop the language and study skills necessary for success in an American college or university. We also enhance this instruction with a variety of opportunities for students to practice what they are learning, both in a formal "Conversation Club", and in more informal cultural settings like trips to museums, restaurants, etc. Our belief is that a student learns by "doing" and by being challenged daily with new material and new ideas.
Special Programs Available at CPELI:
We have agreements with the local community college, Mt. SAC, where students who finish our Level 5 are automatically admitted into Mt. SAC. We also have a "bridge" program which allows Level 5 and above students to take classes at Cal Poly Pomona, the state university on whose campus we are located, while at the same time working on their English language skills.
Another advantage of being located on the California State Polytechnic University campus is that our students get to participate in cultural and educational events and utilize campus facilities, such as the Bronco Bookstore, state-of-the-art university library, numerous dining opportunities, and the gym, tennis and basketball courts, and a beautiful soccer field located just steps from our office and classrooms.
