English Language Immersion Programs, also known as Culture and Language Immersion Camps (CLIC), offer short-term (up to 8-weeks), all inclusive English education for high school/college students, and for professionals. These programs include cultural immersion component that allows participants to observe and learn about American culture, both in classroom and outside of classroom. Students will participate in cultural activities, field trips, and sports with time on the weekends for shopping. They will meet people from across the world while enjoying what has recently been called “the most beautiful college campus in Arkansas”.

Teachers, school administrators, or chaperons can join the group to oversee activities and students’ progress. These programs can be customized for the needs of the group to include other touristic destinations such as Orlando or New York City.
