Live and Learn
There are two ways to LIVE AND LEARN at the Maui Language Institute – through the Intensive English Program (IEP) or the SAM (Study Abroad on Maui) Program. Students who register for these programs are integrated in the same classrooms.
The difference between the two is that the SAM Program attracts groups of students from the same university who are granted credit from their home universities for the courses they take at MLI. SAM students generally stay at MLI for 1-4 months. Intensive English students study at MLI until they are ready to advance to the University of Hawaii Maui College credit program. They generally stay at MLI for 8 weeks to 18 months. The Intensive English Program is an open-enrollment program and therefore students may enter at any time. Both programs also admit short-term students.
