The Yanbu English Language Institute (YELI) offers a wide range of programs and courses to meet the needs of the thousands of learners who study within the RCYCI. In 2012, the YELI was awarded the highest initial accreditation possible from the US-based Commission on English Language Programs Accreditation (CEA), an internationally-acclaimed accreditor of English language programs and institutions around the world.
Applicable to all its programs, the YELI’s accreditation is the first for any English language training institute in the Kingdom, making the YELI one of only a handful of institutions in the gulf to be awarded this vaunted prize.
At RCYCI, the core of the YELI’s activity is the Foundation Program which all RCYCI students must complete before entering into their specialization degree program. It is a comprehensive program that provides a solid basis in English, integrating the essential language skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. The program ensures that all students, from the complete beginner to the more accomplished speaker, obtain the skills they need to succeed in their chosen field. After completing the Foundation Program, students go on to study specialized English courses which constitute essential components of the Associate and Bachelor degree programs and are designed to meet the specific needs of learners chosen pathways.
Always evolving to meet the changing needs of its learners, the YELI actively incorporates the latest methodologies in order to achieve the highest standards.
The following is offered as an overview of the regular academic courses offered by the YELI. Changing needs may change over time and YELI course titles will change to reflect this. As such, all of the following information is subject to change.
