Michigan Language Center (MLC) is the longest-running private English language school in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Since we opened in 1978, we have served over 50,000 international students and professionals. We offer Intensive and Part-Time English Programs, University Pathway, Business English Courses, and Private/Small Group Lessons.
We are authorized to issue the Form I-20 so that students can apply for the F1 Student visa to study at MLC. Our dedicated instructors, vibrant student community, and prime location next to the University of Michigan are all part of what creates a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
MLC's Intensive English Program is a full-time, 20 hour/week program. (full-time) students take classes 20 or more hours per week. There are classes offered at 5 English proficiency levels of classes, from Beginning to Advanced. The curriculum is also enhanced with free lunch hour seminars and conversation groups, such as vocabulary, pronunciation, and Wall Street Journal reading club. Academic and university counseling is available to all students as well. If students are in the U.S. with an F-1 visa through MLC, they must be enrolled in this full-time program.
University Pathway is designed to give MLC students a clear path toward their goal of college or university admissions. Through relationships with our select partner universities, MLC assists academically qualified students in applying to universities, often without having to take English proficiency tests such as TOEFL or IELTS. Students are able to gain conditional admissions to universities so that they can begin their university studies once they complete advanced level English studies at MLC.
