The Intensive English Language Institute (IELI) offers intensive courses of English language instruction to non-native speakers of English who want to increase their English language proficiency for personal, academic, or professional reasons. The IELI’s academic program is divided into three levels. Each level’s curriculum includes a combination of grammar, listening, speaking, writing, and reading. The IELI’s courses are available to fulltime, non-native English speaking (F-1, J-1 visa) students and to members of the Wichita Falls community who wish to enhance their English language skills. Graduate and undergraduate Midwestern State University students who wish to improve their English language skills may enroll in English language courses through the IELI.
The purpose of the IELI curriculum is to provide quality instruction in English, develop academic skills, and provide exposure to American culture for individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and language experiences. Courses are primarily content-based and help prepare students for university studies, life in the United States, and/or work in the American business community.
Admission to the IELI does not constitute admission to the University for purposes of enrolling in courses for academic credit.
