The Embry-Riddle Language Institute (ERLI) is an intensive English program providing English-language instruction and cultural orientation to non-native speakers of English. If you desire to become more proficient in listening, speaking, reading, and writing the English language, this intensive English program is for you.

Students can be granted conditional acceptance pending completion of our program or a passing TOEFL score, assuming they meet all other University admission requirements. Eligible students are also able to earn a part-time recommendation after successful completion of a semester at ERLI, which allows them to begin their University studies while continuing their English-language studies. Embry-Riddle Language Institute students have full access to all Embry-Riddle facilities.
