Michael Chamberlain
Assistant Director of ALCI / Assistant Professor

After having spent more than a decade working as an ESL/EFL teacher, director, and assistant director in five countries and four universities, I can confidently say that ALCI is one of the most challenging academic English programs that you will find anywhere.

Before coming to APU, I specialized in designing custom-made programs for international leaders learning English for business or political purposes. Using a similar experiential learning model at ALCI, our ESL students learn how to give professional presentations, facilitate discussions related to their majors, and write academic research papers. Upon successful completion of our program, you will have the language skills necessary to thrive in the university and global marketplace.
