Eastern Illinois University Welcomes Intensive English Center to Campus

Eastern Illinois University is proud to announce the addition of an intensive English program on campus through a partnership with The Language Company (TLC). TLC is an organization that provides carefully-designed English as a Second Language (ESL) programs to international students who are seeking either educational or personal enrichment in English. TLC is located at 14 different locations across the nation. The highly skilled language instructors from TLC will successfully prepare international students for their university studies. TLC also features a variety of cultural activities to introduce international students to the American culture. 

Located on the EIU campus in Thomas Hall, TLC has much to offer international students. Prospective international students of the university are now offered an opportunity to take intensive English courses before transitioning into the university as either an undergraduate or graduate student. A conditional admission offer to Eastern Illinois University is also available for qualified students through TLC-Charleston for all undergraduate and several graduate programs.

The partnership between TLC and Eastern Illinois University opens up great opportunities to students not only at TLC but also at the university. It enhances the diversity of the university campus and allows more international students to engage in the community.  

The first two students at TLC-Charleston from China, Shuo Wang and Zheng Gong talked about their experience so far:

I like the environment here. The air is fresh and the students are very friendly. It is a good environment to learn English. It is not very stressful. Teachers at The Language Company will arrange different activities outside of class too. The teachers are great. Other than assisting us in studies, they also help us in our living arrangements. For example, if I would like to move off-campus, they would help us to look for apartments. They help us do grocery shopping too.”

For more information or to apply for the program please visit the TLC website here.

For more information about conditional admission to Eastern Illinois University, please contact Kevin Vicker, Director of the Office of International Students and Scholars at kpvicker@eiu.edu

东伊利诺伊大学校园迎来英语语言强化中心

东伊利诺伊大学十分荣幸的宣布其合作伙伴语言公司(TLC)的英语语言强化中心正式进入东伊校园。TLC是专业的ELS语言机构,开设严谨的英语语言课程,专门为有学术与个人语言需要的国际学生设立。TLC在全美有14个校址,其优秀的语言教师团队为学生顺利进入大学学习做保障。同时,TLC还安排丰富的课外活动,使国际学生能更多的接触美国文化。

TLC查尔斯顿分校位于东伊大校园内的托马斯楼,为学生提供很多服务。东伊大的预科学生可以选择在正式转入本科或研究所学习之前在TLC语言学校完成语言强化课程。东伊大学的很多本科和研究生专业还可以提供TLC语言学校学生提前有条件录取通知书。

TLC和东伊利诺伊大学的合作不仅为TLC的学生提供了便利,也为要进入东伊大有语言需要的学生提供了机会,而且丰富了大学校园学生的多元化,也使得更多的国际学生能够加入东伊社区。

TLC查尔斯顿校区第一批来自中国的学生王硕和Gong Zheng谈及他们来到这里的感受:“我喜欢这里的环境。空气新鲜,同学们非常友好。这里是个很适合学习英语的环境。TLC的老师会在课余安排很多活动,他们很棒。在帮助我们学习的同时,他们还帮助我们安排好住宿生活所需。比如,我想要搬到校外住,他们不但愿意帮助我们找合适的房子,还带我们去超市采购。”
