Customized Group English Programs

We offer custom programs for groups that have a specific goal in mind, from cultural experience to test preparation.

SMUS can host a wide variety of groups and can tailor any program to a range of specific needs.

Our group ELL programs can be purely cultural or meet a specific goal, such as preparing for the TOEFL test. We can tailor a program for any group of any age to meet specific needs, at various times during the year.
