Apply to ELI/Session Dates

The ELI offers 5 eight-week sessions throughout the year. Students may enroll at the beginning of any session. Special programs and short-term programs are also available upon request.

Who Can Apply?

We accept applications from anyone whose native language is not English. This includes international students, visitors, au pairs, U.S. residents, and others. All applicants must be at least 18 years old, and have completed secondary school. Additionally, applicants must already be at a high beginner level. High beginners must know the English alphabet, and be able to speak in simple present tense. Unfortunately, the ELI does not offer classes for low beginner level students.
