Every year athletes from more than 80 countries train and study at IMG Academy. IMG Academy Language Center English Programs help non-native English speakers improve their English and reach the same level of English-language proficiency as those for whom English is their first language.
“The personalized attention from the teachers for the performance of each student made the language barrier not a burden anymore. The entire academic team helped our daughter finish the year with good grades and proficiency with the English language.”
International students have several options, depending on English proficiency and grade:
Delivered through the IMG Academy Elementary School, classes introduce and practice all areas of writing, reading, listening and speaking.
Delivered through the IMG Academy Middle School, classes provide a foundation for vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation development.
The IMG Academy prep school program offers an English for Academic Purposes option for student-athletes who speak English at a beginner level. This part-time academic program is designed for IMG athletes who wish to spend 1 or 2 semesters improving their English while training in their program. Depending on their progress, many of these athletes might transition to a middle- or high school, or college or university in an English-speaking country.
