The Intensive English Institute welcomes observers to its classrooms for the purposes of research, instruction, and teacher training.
Faculty, students, and sponsors are welcome and encouraged to visit the IEI's classes. At the same time, we cultivate a classroom environment which is most conducive to English language study, and the presence of too many guests/visitors may be at times distracting for both students and teachers. It is therefore important to regulate the number of visitors to a given class during a specific semester.
