English Language Programs

English language skills open doors of opportunity

Interest in learning English- the leading language of business communication across the region- is growing exponentially. Our programs assist students of all ages and backgrounds to acquire confidence in oral and written English.

We offer both general English language training and specialized instruction for professionals in specific areas. We design courses tailored to the specialized needs of individual organizations, businesses, and government agencies. In addition, AMIDEAST is involved in training English teachers and providing technical assistance to large and small businesses, educational institutions, government agencies, and nongovernmental organizations.
