Dakota English Language Institute (DELI) Program Information

The Dakota State University Language Institute is an intensive English program consisting of 20 hours of classroom work every week.

The advantages to you:

  •  Experienced staff
  •  Modern computer labs
  •  A safe mid-western city
  •  Small college friendliness

The intensive language program is designed to help each student individually. Classes are small so that you can focus on your own needs with the help of an experienced instructor. 

After completion of the program, we will assist you in your efforts for regular admission status at Dakota State University or another university of your Group

Depending on your English skills, you may register for selected courses at DSU during your work at the Institute.

From the moment you are met by our friendly staff, you will feel a part of the DSU family. You are entitled to participate in all university activities. The dormitories (male, female, and coed), the food service, the Community Center and all computer labs are available to you. The International Club, a group of Americans and international students, will help you meet the rest of the campus family.

The town of Madison is the friendly and safe location of the Language Institute. The population of 6,000 has accommodated hundreds of international students over the years. Everyone has a friendly smile and a warm greeting.
