AELR will be offering Online Language Training courses soon through its Academic English Language Institute.
Description of Institute
Academic English Language Institute is an alternative to on-campus English language learning. The Academic English Language Institute operates from a decentralized structure to maximize the benefits AERL Global can provide to students studying abroad.
Course Hours, Placement, and Enrollment.
At the Academic English Language Institute, students do not have to meet visa requirements or federal regulatory requirements for face-to-face instruction. However, as these are academic courses, instructional hours, course expectations, and enrollment standards will mirror standard university structures. Each course meets 48 hours per term, with 3-6 hours per week individual or group work.
Below is are the Academic English Language Institute course schedule. Courses are classes as Foundation or Academic with a total of seven levels beginning at “0” and ending at a C2 CEFR level.

Students must take the placement test to demonstrate skill proficiency levels for each of the 6 skills courses, Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, Vocabulary, and Grammar. Students enroll in classes with in their lowest skill level.
As each course incorporates reading, writing, listening, and speaking, it would jeopardize the student’s progress to allow the student entry into a course that utilizes a skill at a level beyond their demonstrated proficiency. Thus, if a student demonstrated a beginning proficiency level in skill “X,” but an advanced proficiency level in skill “Y,” the student must enroll within the beginning level to ensure that the course is not placed in jeopardy. This is ensures that all students are within the same level, the instructor is able to teach and assess to a specific level, a student’s progress is not jeopardized by the gap, nor that the student’s proficiency level creates issues in the class, i.e. another student’s progress stymied due to mitigating the lower/higher leveled student.
Students can enroll either full or part time. Full-time enrollment would necessitate enrolling in 4-6 courses (12-18 instructional hours per week). Student wishing to enroll part time may take 1-3 course within a level. The Social & Cultural Foundations and Testing Skills course may be taken as many times as a student wishes.
Take the Self-Evaluation to see where you may place.
