Courses at ELP are structured to support the idea that involving our students in natural, meaningful conversation is essential for expanding their active knowledge base. Every course level also provides students the ability to engage in interactive dialogue to increase accuracy and fluency through continuous use of the English language.

At the ELP we offer 3 different  levels:

  • High – Beginning (90)
  • Low – Intermediate (91)
  • High – Intermediate (92)

Each level has 3 core courses with an Enrichment course:

  • Reading and Writing
    • Students learn academic vocabulary, practice reading comprehension, and improve academic and professional writing skills.
  • Listening and Speaking
    • Students practice oral skills by talking with classmates and native speakers, giving presentations, and doing listening exercises (fsuch as news reports, videos, and lectures}.
  • Grammar
    • Students learn English grammar by reviewing rules and doing many real-life activities with reading, listening, and speaking.

We also have a number of enrichment courses which students can choose from.  These courses change every semester, so students who continue in the program have the opportunity to attend different classes each term.

Some enrichment courses we offer include:

  • American Culture
  • Pronunciation
  • English through Movies
  • English through Music
  • Current Events 
  • Digital Literacy
