Future Students

For more than 40 years, the Language and Culture Institute has been teaching students the language skills needed to enroll in Virginia Tech and other U.S. colleges and universities, as well as providing instruction to students who want to improve their general English ability for professional or personal reasons.

During your first week in our Intensive English Program or our AdvantageVT program, you will participate in an orientation session. You will take a language placement test, review all institute policies, get introduced to the area, and begin learning about American life and culture.
