Learn English for Work: Learning English in Chicago will open you up to a tremendous amount of business and career opportunities. Chicago has one of the highest GDPs of cities around the world, generating over $709 million in 2020, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. There is also plenty of job security, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics putting the unemployment rate at only 3.6% in 2018.

Learn English for Studies:  Chicago is also a world center for higher education, with many notable and famous schools, such as The University of Chicago, the Columbia College Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. If you are interested in pursuing higher education as an international applicant, you must apply in the same manner as any other first-year applicant, with an additional English proficiency test requirement. The University of Chicago, for example, only admits students who have demonstrated a superior level of English language competence: they strongly recommend a score of 100 or higher on the Internet-Based TOEFL or 600 or higher on the Paper-Based TOEFL. As you can see, their requirements are very challenging, so make sure you start preparing well in advance! We have Exam Preparation courses we can tailor to your needs and requirements, so don’t hesitate to ask for more information.

Learn English for Social and Culture: Chicago is also a great place to check out the beautiful waterfront views and enjoy the bustling nightlife. The city hosts many social activities throughout the year, including famous concerts, screenings, shows, and lively parties, like the annual Chicago Beer Classic and the Millennium Park Summer Music Series, which draw in audiences from around the world. Taking English courses in Chicago means you’ll get to take part in this thriving cultural scene. Finally, a great command of the language will allow you to take part in the many interesting and informative sightseeing city tours that will take you through the most famous neighborhoods. For example, The Riverwalk and Chicago History Tour follows the path of the Chicago River and focuses on the history of the city and the amazing buildings that line the river. You will make the most out of this beautiful experience after taking some lessons with Language Trainers!
