Considering the fact that English has the largest number of non-native speakers in the world today, it is quite apparent why competency in English is regarded as a skill of central importance that is indispensable for success in academic, professional and social spheres.
Acharya Institute of English and Foreign Languages (AIEFL) was established in January 2012 to cater to the linguistic needs of students from across the world. The institute was the brainchild of Mr. Premnath Reddy, Chairman of Acharya Group and was structured by a team of Language Experts who had put in dedicated efforts towards evolving a scientific learning system wherein the acquisition of language is no more a scary task for the learners of English for the speakers of other languages ESOL.
The Preliminary Self-Access Learning Modules (PSALMs) for various levels of English conforming to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) guidelines are the flagship ESOL strategy of AIEFL. The method has had proven results in its effectiveness not only in making learners comfortable with the use of the language but also in acquiring the necessary skills to clear with ease benchmarking tests such as the Cambridge Certification Examinations.

Design: The course design at AIEFL focuses on the immediate needs of the students without compromising on the long-term needs.
Up-to-date:The content is constantly reviewed and revised by a team of experts and finetuned so as to give the learners the feel of a contemporary and living language.
Approach : AIEFL's foremost concern is to ensure that the inputs discourage bilingual approach and introduce the language in its original flavour as it is used by native speakers. Learning is interactive, student-centered and technology-driven and takes place in a natural and supportive environment. Understanding is derived through application rather than theory.
Components :The content uses integrated learning processes involving listening, speaking, reading, writing and usage simultaneously.
Flexibility : Learners can choose the hours, order and pace of work.

How it is done
If you have a computer with an internet connection, you can learn from home or a cyber-café near your home. On registration, AIEFL will send you the physical course material by courier. The lessons are based on the course material – so you bring the course material to your online class. Your teacher will conduct the class in a virtual online classroom, which is like a normal classroom. The teacher will talk to you, ask you questions and correct your answers. You can also put questions to the teacher. You will be able to see and interact with the teacher and other students, and so can they. There is a virtual whiteboard which the teacher uses for verbal / non-verbal explanation.
