Our mission is to prepare international students and professionals with the language skills necessary to succeed in a wide variety of academic studies or professional settings in the United States and in English speaking countries around the world.
I didn't expect that in just 9 months, starting with zero knowledge of English, that I would be an expert now... and as you can see now, I am speaking with you fluently! If you want to learn English and explore the American culture, CELAC is your best choice.

The English program of CELAC has helped me in a grand way to better my English. The instructors at CELAC are qualified to give classes to international students and are very patient. At CELAC, they understand that each student has different needs and attend to these needs punctually. In general, everyone at CELAC is patient and always has the ability to help us in our difficulties. I am very happy to be part of this program, and my improvement in English as a result is remarkable. - CELAC graduate Summer 2015
