As Georgia Tech expands its global reach, its need to support English as an additional language grows. As part of its mission, the Language Institute helps Georgia Tech provide that support. If you are part of the Georgia Tech community and you need communication support for yourself, your international students, an international visiting scholar, or any other member of the Georgia Tech global community, please let us know. We can point you to one of the programs or services listed below, or we can create a customized option for you or your department.

Custom Courses

The communication needs of the students in each department on campus may differ. The Georgia Tech Language Institute can work with your department to tailor a course that can meet the needs and schedule of your department.

English Proficiency Assessments for Prospective J-1 Scholars and Interns
