A complete experience

The Institute is located on the distinguished campus of Jacksonville State University in beautiful Jacksonville, Alabama. You will have dozens of opportunities to learn and use English every day.
 
On campus you will live alongside Americans and have free access to university services and facilities such as the library, health club, entertainment and sports events, and local transportation.
 
Off campus you and your classmates will enjoy guided adventures to nearby cities and cultural attractions, and then use these experiences in the classroom.
 

Get your team together

If you have a group of five or more teachers, we offer a variety of program lengths. Total cost includes airport pickup, a welcome BBQ, cultural trips, a certificate ceremony—everything except personal expenses such as mobile phone.
