With campuses in and around Chicago and Boston, international students can attend English classes in a major American city for a total culture and language immersion experience. Immersion while formally studying a language allows students to immediately use new language skills and vocabulary words in the real world, creating a more effective learning environment. Students also learn native usage of the language and become comfortable speaking naturally and spontaneously.

CSI offers a variety of ESL programs including the Intensive English Programs (IEP). These programs offer focused classroom and computer-based English as a second language training. They are divided into three subject areas: vocabulary and conversation, writing and grammar, and reading strategies. These English classes for international students will allow participants to talk freely with native English-speakers about a variety of subjects. Students will also be able to read and write at an advanced level by the end of the program.
For advanced ESL programs, classes in the Academic English Programs (AEP) include rigorous English training in reading for academic purposes, critical writing skills, and speaking and listening skills especially suited for participation in American college classrooms. These are advanced programs that build on a student's existing language skills in reading, writing, and verbal communication.
For the international student with an advanced English proficiency looking to improve their professional communication skills and gain professional experience, CSI offers a number of Business English programs. Through a combination of lecture supplemented by required externship, these programs offer a way for students to practice skills learned in the classroom in real world work situations.
