English Language Institute
The English Language Institute (ELI) attracts talented students from around the world who have studied English for at least three years and who seek to enhance their English language skills in a supportive and rigorous five-week program.Through the use of a wide variety of language learning strategies, ELI courses in Expository and Creative Writing, Reading Skills, and an elective of the student’s choosing drive substantive changes in each student’s ability to read, write, speak, and understand spoken English while working both independently and collaboratively with peers.
Several trips to key cultural and elite educational sites within New England are included in the ELI program and enable students to practice their language and artistic skills through immersive experience with American culture in a variety of settings.
ELI students have numerous opportunities to interact with students enrolled in our other programs through shared elective courses as well as dorm life, afternoon activities and athletics, meals in the dining hall, and special events planned through the Student Activities Center.
