ESL Program Introduction

The English Language Institute is an intensive English program (IEP) for international students who want to improve their English language skills. In eight-week sessions, students at all levels study writing, grammar, reading, listening and speaking, pronunciation, vocabulary, TOEFL preparation and American culture. After attending the ELI, students move on to undergraduate studies, graduate studies, and careers. Although ELI students come from all over the world speaking different languages, together they form a community that makes the ELI experience unique. In each session, there are 20-25 different countries represented. The diversity makes English proficiency a necessity and motivates study and language acquisition. The ELIís professional and nurturing faculty and staff take an interest in each studentís well-being, in and out of the classroom. The ELI is proud of this personal touch which sets it apart from many larger programs.
