English Language Programs

Learn English at Saint Michael's College

In today’s vastly connected global community, the acquisition of English language can be one of the most useful endeavors for speakers of other languages. Saint Michael’s has a long and distinguished history not only of teaching English as a second language, but also of training to others to be teachers of English language classes. Our approach is rigorous yet very supportive, offering students in either program world-class instruction and a commitment to each student’s success.

Saint Michael’s offers two programs for students, the Intensive English Program, which aims to help students improve their English skills, and the Academic English Program, which looks to put students on a pathway to continued education while enhancing their English skills.
