Adult English Programs

We take learning seriously. If you’re over 18 and want to improve your English, we’re here to help. Our Adult English Programs, which are offered through the IMG Academy Language Center, are designed for any adult who wants to improve or practice English through social, cultural and educational activities. Our programs are designed to meet a wide variety of needs and interests.

Each program consists of three hours of class each day throughout the business week. The classes run Monday through Friday from either 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Participants’ language level is assessed through various methods.

Our Adult English Programs are perfect for part-time students, visitors and family members who want to improve their English skills for school or professional purposes. We also welcome community members in the Sarasota and Bradenton area.
