Training in English, orientation to American life and culture and preparation for successful university study in the United States are integral components of all ALCI ESL programs. For admission, students must have completed high school or its equivalent. Instruction in some courses is offered at up to five levels of proficiency: high beginning through academic preparation. New students must take a placement test prior to registration so that the appropriate level of study can be determined.

ALCI offers three different ESL programs to meet the needs of its diverse student populations. Depending on their needs, Worcester-area community students can choose to join either the ALCI/COPACE Integrated Degree Program or the Community ESL Program. International students who want to come to the U.S. on a visa enroll in the Intensive ESL Program for International Students.
