English for Special Purposes


Through our network of talented faculty across Texas university systems and the more than 50 years of experience with Intensive English programing, TIEP is uniquely positioned to create specially-designed programs for international groups.

TIEC prepares faculty to be proficient in English, teachers of English to develop curriculum, business groups to sharpen their business English, and delivers high school and university students language and culture programs. We also offer short courses on special topics, such as nursing, entrepreneurship, business, teacher training and American culture. We organize extra-curricular social and cultural activities, and provide assistance with housing arrangements.

Our ESP programs are offered year-round and can be arranged at the group’s convenience in sessions of different lengths.

Classes are taught by experienced, professionally trained faculty with graduate degrees that are all native speakers of English.
