The International Language Institute of Massachusetts (ILI) has signed an agreement with Smith College to provide English language training on the Smith College campus in Northampton, Massachusetts. On a four-week English program, students will receive 20 hours of language instruction weekly.
To ensure the program is equally rigorous for all ability levels, students are divided into groups of 10, each group with its own instructors. Language instruction is accompanied by intensive work in reading and writing comprehension. Strong writing skills in particular are required for success in American colleges and universities. ELL (English Language Learner) writing classes are taught by Smith faculty and staff.
During summer 2012, ILI worked with Smith College in their Intensive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Program, providing English instruction to 10 Iraqi scholars from the University of Baghdad.
