Spanish-American Institute
A Not-For-Profit, Equal Educational Opportunity Language School

Mission Statement
The Spanish-American Institute's mission is to provide
effective English language skills training to individuals. 
 
Philosophy
The Institute believes that students are more likely to begin and to 
successfully complete English language training when English For Specific 
Purposes courses (i.e. courses in other areas that are 
premised on language learning while having other content 
are combined with ESL-Only courses,. 
 
Objectives
The Institute implements this philosophy through:
The "Plus" courses of the ESL-Plus Course of Study have been reviewed 
within the context of English for Special Purposes (ESP) methodology and pedagogy.
The curriculum components for the ESP courses have goals, objectives, and 
student learning outcomes that are premised on language learning while having other content.
