Learning English works best when you use the language in different ways. In our program at Sullivan and Cogliano Training Centers, you will talk with instructors and other students, and use computers for lessons and practice.

When you begin, you will receive a CASAS Pre-assessment to determine the best starting point for you to effectively learn English. Follow-up tests will help you to move to the next step when you are ready. We take care in helping you achieve your dreams; we are at your side, every step of the way.

For those who wish to pursue higher education, we will help you prepare for the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). The TOEFL measures your ability to use both spoken and written English at the college level.

Sullivan and Cogliano Training Centers is approved to enroll non-immigrant students and can issue a Form I-20. See our International Tab for more information should you be an International student desiring to live and learn in Miami, Florida
