    • A Message from School
    • Welcome to the American English Institute! The AEI is proudly housed on the University of Oregon(UO) campus, a nationally ranked and internationally recognized institution, located in Eugene, in the beautiful state of Oregon. Students from all over the world call AEI their second home. For many of these students, AEI was the beginning of their UO experience and for others, AEI was their home away from home as they participated on a study abroad or professional English language and culture training.

      The program at the AEI can provide you with intensive English program for non-UO students (18-23 hours per week) or credit classes (4 credits per class) for admitted UO students. The instructors at the AEI are excellent; most have taught internationally and many continue to partner with ministries of education, universities, and private industries all around the world.

      Classes in the AEI are small, 15-18 students, so you will receive attention and have the chance to participate. While working with students from around the world, you will become more confident in your English and you will have many chances to use English in your daily life, academic life, and even professional life.

      Join us at the AEI. We would be happy to welcome you into our classrooms.

      Just for me, it was a pretty good chance to make my career better through U of Oregon. I got a Bachelor of Science, Economics Degree in 2004. I can say one very good thing strongly is that Eugene is the purest city I have ever seen. It has nothing to do with the school quality, but if somebody give me a question about U of Oregon, I can not help but say good things about Eugene's atmosphere^^. But if you want to know more, just give it more time! Work hard!

      겨울동안 내리는 비가 절대로 싫지 않은 곳 에 위치한 학교는 공기좋고 여유롭죠. 봄부터 시작되는 밝고 청명한 날씨는 그야말로 최고라고 할수 있고, 자연을 쉽게 접할 수 있어서 더욱 좋습니다.
      미국에 위치한 어학코스 중에서는 한국 학생이 비교적 적은 편이라 할 수 있죠. 그래서 영어를 사용할 기회가 더욱 많아 지는것도 사실이고 커리큘럼이 미국학교 대학 진학을 하는데 도움을 줄수 있는 부분으로 많이 꾸며져 있어서 에세이 등의 숙제가 꾸준하게 나갑니다.
      어학연수와 자연을 한번에 만끽 하고 싶으시다면
      적극 추천 할만한 학교라고 생각합니다.

      아름다운 주위환경 그리고 미국 대학 문화
      2005년 겨울, 어학연수를 내 손으로 직접 정해 가겠다고 마음먹은 후 우연히 ApplyESL을 인터넷에서 알게 되었습니다. 이 사이트는 직접 제일 고려되는 아시아인 비율이나 주위 환경, 수업료등을 확인할 수 있고 직접 컨택트할 수 있는 장점으로 어플라이하게 되었고 2006년 3월말부터 2007년 1월초까지 어학연수를 마쳤습니다. 예상되로 한국인의 비율도 적었으며 오레건 특유의 광활한 자연환경에서 즐겁게 생활하고 돌아왔습니다.
