ABOUT US

Mentor Language Institute offers English as a Second Language (ESL), English for Academic Purposes (EAP), and English for Specific Purpose (ESP) instruction that meets the needs of students and empowers them with a lasting ability to use English successfully in their academic, professional and personal pursuits.

MLI started in 2002. Since then, we have educated thousands of students from over 50 countries. Our main campus is located in the heart of Beverly Hills near Rodeo Drive. In the beginning we offered ESL and TOEFL® programs only, but since then we’ve added Business English, Conversation, TOEIC®, GRE®/GMAT® and IELTS. Our newest campus (opened in 2013) is located in Hollywood near the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame and Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Over the years we have had the pleasure to help ESL students from all walks of life – college students, celebrities, and global professionals.

Our English school in Los Angeles offers programs in ESL, TOEFL®(iBT), Pronunciation, Business English, TOEIC®, Business English plus TOEIC®, Conversation, GMAT® and GRE®. After class, students enjoy a full schedule of activities and field trips, each of which offer opportunities to practice English conversation. U.S. Student Services Inc provides housing services such as home-stay and dormitories for MLI students. MLI also provides other supporting services in order for international students to live safely and comfortably. MLI has Mutual Recognition Programs with many colleges in order to allow students to easily transfer into higher education opportunities. MLI is an English school where serious students can improve their language skills while experiencing the best of American culture. These reasons, as well as many others, are why students choose to study at Mentor Language Institute.
