Having taught in several language schools across the city of Atlanta, the year 2012 marked a major turning point in Dr. Joel Floyd’s career path. In this year, Dr. Floyd stepped out and began English for a Lifetime Language Institute in the small town of Doraville. Dr. Floyd’s primary goal was to help immigrants learn and master the English language in the USA for survival and career purposes. Dr. Floyd was the first teacher of English for a Lifetime with only two students. One student had migrated to the USA from Mexico and the other student from Ethiopia.
Within the first year of English for a Lifetime, the word began to spread quickly across the multicultural town of Doraville, and Dr. Floyd recruited several other English teachers to help teach the fast growing student population. After the first year of its inception, English for a Lifetime Language Institute continued to grow, and the institute moved its location five minutes north into the city of Peachtree Corners.
Over the last several years, English for a Lifetime has evolved into a leading English language school for English language learners. English for a Lifetime has enrolled and trained thousands of students from across the globe into its outstanding adult English language program, and English for a Lifetime continues to push every student forward in mastering the English language.
At present, English for a Lifetime offers a six level adult education ESL/ESOL program both on campus and online, business English skills courses, business English in the workplace (on -site training) private English language training, the Test of English as a foreign language (TOEFL)preparation for English language learners, planning to attend an American college or university, online GED preparation in Spanish, primarily among Hispanic- Latino adult learners, seeking DACA approval, and a 120 hour online Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) training course for individuals interested in teaching the English language abroad and or online.
Here at English for a Lifetime, “We are opening the doors to success.”
