Welcome to our English Language Institute page! Our English program is part of Middle East University (MEU), and we are located on the MEU campus.

The English Institute is a full-time English program that aims to help students whose first language is not English to develop the language skills needed to function in English, as well as the academic skills needed to succeed in university. The program is designed to improve the English comprehension and speaking, as well as reading and writing skills through the study of reading, grammar, vocabulary, composition, oral and aural practice.

Our English program is open to all students whether they intend to pursue a degree at Middle East University or not.
