MISSION STATEMENTThe mission of the Lingua Franca Institute is to provide a nurturing English learning experience which fosters confident interactions for everyday life.
Welcome to the Lingua Franca Institute!Thank you for your interest in the Lingua Franca Institute (LFI), an intensive English language program at the Washington University of Virginia (WUV). Established in 1992, the Lingua Franca Institute is an SEVP-certified ESL program in Annandale, Virginia, located just outside Washington, DC. LFI provides an affordable education taught by fluent English instructors in small class sizes with a student-centered approach. We know that studying another language can be a challenging experience, especially as an adult. At LFI, we make that experience more comfortable with a relaxed, friendly, and supportive classroom atmosphere. ‘Lingua Franca’ means “a language used among people who speak various different languages” (Merriam-Webster’s Learner’s Dictionary). English is the “lingua franca” for our diverse group of students, representing approximately 20 countries. We value and respect each student’s language and culture, and promote the same for English and American culture, through sharing of ideas and experiences. Some of our instructors know other languages and WUV is primarily bilingual – English and Korean. The majority of our students have F-1 visas; however, any eligible visa holder or resident is welcome to take classes. Our students’ goals vary from wanting to improve their communication for daily living in the U.S. to studying English to eventually transfer to degree programs. Whatever your reason, we hope LFI can meet your educational goals. Note: Completion of the advanced levels of LFI serves as your proof of English skill for WUV degree programs. See Academics for more information about WUV’s degree programs.
INTERNATIONAL F-1 STUDENTS ONLYFor F-1 students, your I-20 will be issued for approximately 24 months, depending on your start date. Taking two classes fulfills your minimum requirement of 18 hours/week to maintain your I-20.

GOALS OF LFI

- Create a supportive and encouraging community of learning in which each student is valued and respected
- Create an interactive, communicative class environment to give students the opportunity to learn, think, and develop English communication skills
- Provide students with cultural knowledge and awareness recognizing that language and culture are closely related
- Cultivate a diverse community of students and teachers, in which members learn from experience and practice
- Encourage students to discuss issues in English outside the classroom

PHILOSOPHY OF PROGRAMLFI’s instructional methodology is based on the communicative language teaching method. This method, supported by second language acquisition research, focuses on engaging students in a range of activities that involve meaningful, relevant communication. Simply put, it’s based on the idea that the primary goal of learning a language is to communicate. Making use of real-life, authentic situations encourage students to use and understand the English language. What changes from level to level is the growth and complexity of the communication and an increase in fluency and independence in the ability to respond in English in various settings to a wider range of speakers. LFI’s curriculum is based on implementing these principles of learning:
- Students remember and understand English best through a hands-on, learning by doing approach.
- Activities need to be as rich, varied, and meaningful as possible.
- Classes are designed to promote cooperative and collaborative learning.
- Grammar is taught throughout the context of communicative tasks.
- Feedback to student’s errors should always be positive and need not be excessive.
- The classroom atmosphere should be relaxed, friendly, and supportive.
