Interested in studying at YALI?
In order to qualify for classes at the Yemen-America Language Institute, all new students and those who have not studied for four consecutive terms must take a placement exam.
This ensures that every student obtains the appropriate instruction based on their level of comprehension.
Who We Are
Founded by the United States Embassy in Sana’a in 1975, YALI now celebrates its 35th anniversary as the largest and most respected English language institute in Yemen. Backed by the United States Government, YALI is part of the mission to strengthen mutual understanding and cooperation between Americans and the peoples of the Middle East and North Africa. As a testament to this end, over a hundred thousand students have studied at YALI and consider it their second home.
We hope to provide public diplomacy by enhancing the English language proficiency of the Yemeni people and to further understanding of the United States, its people, and its culture.
With a rich and effective curriculum using well-known textbooks, challenging study materials and rigorous tests, it is no surprise that the YALI certificate is well regarded by businesses, government, and non-governmental organizations.
YALI students go on to study at universities abroad and lead successful careers. Among YALI’s graduates you will find embassy employees, government officials, business men and women, academics, journalists, translators, engineers, and doctors.
