- ABOUT LAKELAND
The English Language Institute (ELI) is Lakeland College's intensive English program, offering full-time ESL courses covering all language skill areas. The purpose of the ELI is to prepare non-native speakers of English to be successful students in American college programs.
As an ELI student, you will take 18 hours of English classes. Your schedule will include reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and TOEFL preparation. You will learn about American culture inside and outside of the classroom, and you will have constant opportunities to practice your English as you interact with Americans in the residence hall, cafeteria, library, at sporting events, and in every other part of your college experience.
The number of semesters you study in the ELI depends on your initial English proficiency level and the amount of effort you put forth as you study. Most beginning and low-intermediate students need two semesters of intensive English study before taking academic classes, while high-intermediate and advanced students usually need only one semester.
