message I am pleased to introduce you to Fordham University's Institute of American Language and Culture (IALC), located at the Lincoln Center campus in mid-town Manhattan. 
The IALC offers international students and New York's international community an academically challenging and competitively priced American English curriculum.  Our full-time intensive program and part-time courses enable motivated students to improve their English language skills in a limited amount of time.
Fordham's attractive Lincoln Center campus is conveniently located near Columbus Circle, major subway lines, and cross-town buses.  IALC students have opportunities to experience a variety of cultural activities, to participate in a language exchange program with native-English speaking Fordham University students, and to attend academic workshops (grammar, pronunciation, conversation, and TOEFL preparation) - all at no additional cost.
Placement tests are administered upon request throughout the year and academic advisement for appropriate course selection is provided.  Registration begins one month before the start of classes.
For more information, or to schedule a placement test, call us at 212-636-6353, visit our offices at 33 West 60th Street on the third floor, or write to us at We look forward to hearing from you.
