The United Nations has designated April 23 English Language Day.

With more than 350 million native speakers and an approximated 430 million non-native speakers around the world, English is an important global language. It is widely used in scientific, technical, and other communications, and is an important literary language as well.

MIT offers a robust English Language Studies curriculum for non-native English speakers that serves the diverse needs of our large international student population. Global Languages offers a concentration in English Language Studies.
