Business English Courses, and Custom Courses for Professionals

The ESL classroom supports an English-only environment. International students benefit from the English immersion experience inside the classroom. Outside the classroom, students at the Arizona Language Center practice English reading, speaking and listening skills through the many opportunities to participate in the local culture by visiting the restaurants, shops, theaters and art galleries that are within walking distance of the center. Guided tours of the Grand Canyon, Native American cultural sites and the High Sonoran Desert are a few favorite English language immersion activities.
