About Us

Here at MESLS, we recognize that language learning takes place both in and outside the classroom. Whether students are drinking coffee in the lunchroom, hanging out in the hallways,  working in the computer lab, or discovering new places on MESLS trips, they have the opportunity to speak English with their peers, teachers, tutors and conversation partners.

At MESLS you can:

  • Improve English conversation skills
  • Improve English for academic and professional uses
  • Prepare for graduate or undergraduate study in the U.S.
  • Learn English in class, in the computer lab, in the student lounge, and with American conversation partners

MESLS is authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students. MESLS also provides visa counseling services and is a valuable source of information for all immigration questions and concerns.
