Intensive English Language Institute (IELI) Overview

Since 1979, the IELI has been helping students from different language backgrounds enhance their English skills.  Core courses in reading, writing, speaking/listening and grammar focus on language skills across seven proficiency levels--from high beginning to advanced.

IELI classes meet four hours a day, Monday through Friday, between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.; additionally, there are regularly-scheduled activities outside of the classroom. Five terms of eight weeks each are offered each year.

The mission of the Intensive English Language Institute at Creighton University is to help fulfill students' academic, professional or personal language goals through quality language instruction and cultural orientation activities.
