ESL Program (General English)

This program focuses on how to communicate in English.
It is helpful in strengthening your 4 skills (writing, listening, speaking, and reading.)

This is the most popular program at MLI. It is divided into 8 levels. You can improve your English skills in a class that matches your English proficiency.


CMAR stands for Conversation Management and Accent Reduction, which means pronunciation correction.

In addition to ESL programs, this program aims to further enhance pronunciation skills. This program focuses on students correctly pronouncing the main consonants and vowels in English. Listening to correct pronunciation repeatedly also leads to improved listening skills.


TOEFL® iBT is a test to evaluate the English proficiency of non-English speaking people. A TOEFL® score is required by many universities in the United States, but also government agencies, private enterprises, qualification acquisition organizations, and scholarship institutions.

MLI's TOEFL® program concentrates on test strategies and improving all 4 skills (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) to get a high score on the Internet-Based Test (iBT).


IELTS™ is a test, developed in the UK and Australia, to evaluate students' English proficiency. Recently, many American universities require either a TOEFL® score, or an IELTS ™ score.

The program consists of four parts: listening, speaking, reading and writing. In this class, you will learn the skills/strategies for achieving high scores in each section.

IELTS ™ is said to be relatively easier than TOEFL®. It is a perfect program for students who find TOEFL® difficult.

Conversation Program

This program focuses on daily life conversation and aims at helping students speak English fluently.

You learn effectively while simulating various conversations used in "real life" with pronunciation correction (CMAR), idioms class(FOI) to learn commonly used idioms, and role play practice class(RPP).

Business English

In the international business scene, English is the universal language of the world. The aim of this program is to improve business communication skills in English.

Your English skills will comprehensively improve with practical simulations such as student powerpoint presentations, telephone practice, negotiations, and meetings, but also by focusing on business vocabulary, listening, writing, and discussion skills.

Business + TOEIC®

The TOEIC® test is an indicator of English proficiency in business and is used by various companies and organizations around the world. In addition to the standard Business program, the TOEIC® program prepares students for success on the TOEIC® - Listening and Reading Exam by introducing essential vocabulary and exploring strategies for achieving a high score on the test.

This program will be helpful in improving your English skills, such as vocabulary, reading, listening, and grammar. By learning the strategies to find correct answers, you will be able to get a high score.


To attend graduate school in the U.S., applicants need a GRE® or GMAT® score. Students in the GRE®/GMAT® program will learn essential skills and strategies for high achievement on the verbal portion of each respective test. The program focuses on vocabulary, essay writing, and reading comprehension.

By knowing the tendency of question, you will learn how to guide correct answers.
