Here at English for Internationals, we offer many programs with the intent of helping internationals gain the communication skills they need to live a successful life in the United States. Our largest program at our school is the F1 Student Visa Program. If you have questions about what the F1 Student Visa Program is and why it can help you, you might find the questions and answers below helpful.
The F1 Visa allows internationals to enter the U.S. while they are enrolled full-time in an accredited school or English learning program. English for Internationals is an accredited program that allows internationals to improve their English communication skills.
Students who complete our F1 Student Visa Program learn English grammar, listening, speaking, reading, vocabulary, and writing skills. These communication abilities are beneficial for school, the workplace, and personal relationships.
The F1 Program here at English for Internationals is on a beginner to advanced level. Students who enroll in the program will be challenged with learning material that will ultimately improve their English communication skills as a whole.
The students in our F1 Program usually have the time to attend school and have hobbies. We have two schedule options available:
The F1 Program at English for Internationals is an 18 hour per week commitment, which allows students to have extracurricular activities.

For the past 10 years, English for Internationals has partnered with the rafting company, Cascade Outdoors, and we just enjoyed our most recent trip there Sunday, Aug. 26.
Their professional guides were patient with our international students and always show us a safe an exciting time on the Ocoee River in Tennessee. With good company and an incredible experience, our time with Cascade Outdoors did not disappoint! It was an amazing way to spend the day!
Santiago studied at English for Internationals last term, and he sent us this autobiography when he returned to his home country, Mexico.
Learning English is not always easy. It has taken me a long period of my short life to be as fluent as I am now. However, English for Internationals did something that my previous schools were not able to do: Have fun while getting knowledge.
What’s better than being able to learn or practice a language in the countries they speak it? That’s the reason why I came to US, to practice as much as I could this amazing language. Listening the pronunciation, discovering new words and talking to an experienced speaker were some of the things I really wanted to try while being in the country. English for Internationals was definitely the best place to do it.
Unlike many school’s systems around the world, one of the things that made me really enjoy this period of time here was the amazing diversity and communication among students. All of us want to give our best to learn as much as possible, meaning we are looking for the same goal. This creates an amazing dynamic in each class and make the relationship between students and teachers grow in a way that all of us feel more confident to talk.
Besides the incredible atmosphere, another amazing feature of this school is the amazing teachers and staff. Each one of them has some unique teaching strategies that work amazingly for the students and help us improve in the language even faster. Besides, they all have great communication with the students and with other members of the school which helps to create a feeling of happiness and an easier comprehension of the topics.
English is definitely one of the most spoken languages around the world and I consider that it will open different possibilities not only to my laboral area, but also my personal life. Being able to travel to different countries, which their main language is English, is now easier to me because now I can communicate with the people and understand how they talk in their daily life.
I’m so grateful to have found this school that has everything I ever wanted. Teachers and students help me through the course with just their positivity and happiness of being in the class, something that I will never forget. English for Internationals really left a wonderful memory for the rest of my life.
