What Our Students Say

George (Chao-Chih Wang), Taiwan

"We not only do activities all week after classes but also on Saturdays. We spend not only 6 hours speaking English per day, but I think it's 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. My friends who came here to learn English always sign up for extra semesters, even though this is not what they originally planned to do. Why? Because they have fun and learn a lot."

Vicenzo Trobia, Italy

"The ELI was a positive experience for me because it combines several factors: the excellent quality of education, the unique location in one of the safest and most livable cities in the U.S., probably the best value for the money and most notable sense of commitment and of service the ELI staff was able to give to me and the other students."

Mehmet Doygun, Turkey

"One thing I really liked about ELI is how the Director, the teachers, the Interaction Leaders and the other staff of the ELI were so personal and friendly. They were always encouraging and helping students to do their best."

Irineu Romano, Brazil

"When I got here, I had very little English knowledge. ELI helped me to improve my English skills gradually. After four months I noticed a considerable difference about both my oral and written skills. I am going to Barcelona to finish my Master's program (Master of Arts in international business) which I started at the University of Florida."

Hector Alejandro Arevalo, Colombia

"The people at the ELI were not just a group of professors teaching English; they are a group of persons that go beyond their obligations. They share their experiences and knowledge so I was able to grow not only as a person but also in my English skills. And for a happy ending six months later I passed the TOEFL, the GRE and I was accepted to the University of Florida to a Master's of Science program."
