Intensive English language Program
Access International Business Institute is an English as a second language school located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The school was founded by the current Director, Michael G. Milne, Ph.D. in 1984. At Access International we recently celebrated our 30th anniversary.
Access International is fully accredited by ACCET, the American Council on Continuing Education and Training, an accrediting agency located in Washington, D.C. Access International is also authorized by Homeland Security to issue the I-20 document, a preliminary document for international students who wish to study in the United States on an F-1 International Student visa.
Our program offers intensive English language study in five areas: one, reading skills (reading comprehension, vocabulary enrichment, and paraphrase and discussion skills); two, grammar for speaking; three, composition skills (writing); four, speaking and pronunciation; and five, preparation for taking the TOEFL and MELAB examinations.
Our educational philosophy is based on the communicative method of teaching and learning the English language. This is the student centered model with the instructor acting as a facilitator of small group classroom learning activities (tasks and proficiency based language learning activities). The faculty of Access International is comprised of outstanding, professional, experienced, and caring American ESL instructors.
The Access International ESL course program has been extraordinarily productive over the years. Many hundreds of our graduates have gone on to university undergraduate and graduate degree programs in institutions of higher learning across the length and breadth of the United States. We excel at preparing our students for an American university experience.
We are also known as being the friendliest program in the United States. Over the 30 years of our programs, our students have made lifelong friends with students from other lands. And we are economical. Access International offers its ESL program at a very reasonable price. Come join us!
