Courses offered in University of Delaware ELI, Newark, United States
“I like the CAP program. The ELI EAPVI class is almost like a university class. It’s very helpful.”
Xiaonan Sui, China
“Since I graduated from the ELI, there has not been a period where I didn’t wish I could go back to my ELI life. The joy I had with my international friends, my ELI teachers, and local Delawareans, everything was simple back then…I have faced so many international students who have been struggling at American universities due to the lack of English skills. So, whenever I get asked how my English is better than my fellow internationals, I always refer to the ELI.”
Abdullah Alahmad, Saudi Arabia
“I like the teachers. Besides teaching the classes they are very helpful outside the classroom and they give you advice.”
Shuichi Nakata, Japan
“Not only has the ELI improved my English language skills, but it also has helped me explore other cultures. For instance, I had never thought that at someday I would have so many friends from other cultures. We have shared beliefs, thoughts, and even food. These experiences have widened my vision.”
Abdulaziz Alswilm, Saudi Arabia (ELI Valedictorian Session I14)
“What I most like about living in America is living in a small city like Newark, and we have small classes which are super helpful with the learning of English.”
Joana Aguiar, Brazil
“The best six weeks of my life were spent here [at the ELI]. Great teachers, great place, wonderful experience.”
