Welcome to the English Language Institute (ELI)

The University of Florida English Language Institute offers intensive English programs that prepare students for using English in the real world. Our programs are based on current research in the fields of language teaching, acquisition, learning and assessment, and the more than 60 years of experience we have teaching English as a second language to international students at the University of Florida. Our faculty and staff are committed to providing the quality service and education you deserve. We offer English instruction that prepares you for using English in an academic or professional context and the culture that is all around you.
