ALP Information Session

Thinking about improving your English language skills?

Join us for a live information session to find out more about the American Language Program at Columbia University in New York, which has been teaching English to international students for over 100 years.

Learn about our intensive English courses, our levels, how we teach, and what it’s like to be a student in our program. Find out about our fall, spring, and summer classes, and our special winter and business programs.

Studying full-time in the United States is a great way to make progress and reach your language goals. The ALP is for those:

- planning on going to university in the U.S.
- looking to achieve professional success in the U.S. or abroad
- looking to fulfill a personal dream of studying in New York

Our rigorous courses will help you build confidence in your spoken and written English, and our activities program will help you practice outside class, build community, and experience New York City.

We look forward to meeting you and answering your questions.
