A Not-For-Profit, Equal Educational Opportunity Language School
The Spanish-American Institute's mission is to provide
effective English language skills training to individuals.
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,.
The Institute implements this philosophy through:
the establishment and maintenance of an effective faculty,
the development of English For Specific Purposes business and
computer courses as well as traditional ESL only courses, and
the integration of a varied English as a Second Language course sequence.
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.
