Faculty & Staff

At the English Language Institute (ELI), all of our faculty members have Master degrees in Applied Linguistics or Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL). Our teachers use communicative language teaching approaches, incorporate technology, and provide individualized attention. Classes are small and encourage student participation.

Student E-Portfolios

A major component of ELI courses is the Student E-Portfolio. The E-Portfolios are websites that students create to share their class projects and reflections on learning English during their time in the ELI. Many students choose to continue their E-Portfolios throughout their university studies, careers, and beyond! Click HERE to view our student E-Portfolios.
