Frequently Asked Questions and Q&A



Legal Status

My question is do I need to have legal status to study English in the United States? I hope you reply soon.


Dear Ahmed,
In order to study in the United States in an English program, like those listed at, students must have a student or tourist visa or be a citizen of the United States. So, yes, you must have legal status in order to take one of the English courses listed on our website.
