3. All students
take a placement test upon arrival. There are no classes for beginners,
so students who place below the high beginning level will be directed
to other English programs. Our high beginning level is approximately equivalent
to 24 on the
internet-based TOEFL. Please note that the high beginning level is new for Fall 2016. The level 2 classes will not run if fewer than 10 students register.
4. If you have
a student visa (F-1) from another English program in the US, you must
transfer your I-20 to the ELI. You must request a transfer
release form from us at the time you apply, and consult with
the student advisor at your current school about how to proceed.
