About Our Faculty and Staff

English for Internationals is accredited through ACCET. Therefore, EFI is required to uphold quality standards throughout the educational programs and to have a faculty with complimentary English degrees providing English instruction to the students.  There are fifteen professional English instructors with bachelors and/or master's degrees plus experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) either in the US or abroad.  Many of them are bi-lingual and possess  a variety of languages, but in EFI, "English only" is the mode of the day.  The faculty has acquired educational experience in schools, in colleges and universities as well as in other countries.

English for Internationals is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students.  A Designated School Officer is available to help students complete the  process required to apply for a student visa, to transfer from another institution,  or to change visa status.  This staff person is knowledgeable regarding immigration procedures and study laws and answers questions and concerns quickly and correctly.

EFI's Office Administrator is bi-lingual and can help students with a variety of situations -  language, personal, and some educational.  She is also well informed as to the visa process and can answer many questions internationals have regarding the visa requirements.  

EFI faculty and staff all recognize the difficult transition each new student makes as they choose to attend classes to learn another language.    That's where the "risk free" environment comes from - EFI is a comfortable, friendly place to learn.
