Temple University’s Center for American Language and Culture attracts students from all over the world to the historic city of Philadelphia, the second-largest city on the U.S. east coast, and a cultural, artistic and culinary hub. International students enjoy the excellent educational resources available on Temple's campus and many cultural experiences in downtown Philadelphia. Small class sizes and caring, experienced teachers help students at all proficiency levels reach their goals.

Non-native speakers come to the Center to improve their English language skills for study, employment and to enhance their everyday lives. Temple also offers Conditional Admission for students who wish to attend the university, as well as special programs that focus on particular skills or provide a cultural immersion experience in the U.S.
