Study English online.

Prepare for university and career from your home.


ELI Online Intensive English Program

Learn English rapidly with 12 hours per week of live instruction. Your teachers at the English Language Institute (ELI) will prepare you for the language and academic requirements of university study and the professional workplace. 

The program's courses emphasize the ability to express yourself effectively, so you can be confident that you will have the real-world skills to succeed:

young man studying onlineListening, Speaking & Critical Thinking

Upgrade your verbal skills, especially your ability to communicate effectively at college and in the workplace. 

Reading, Writing & Critical Thinking

Read, write, and research at a professional level. Think critically about what you are reading and writing, participate in discussions, and collaborate with other students on team projects. 

Public Speaking & Presentation

Become more confident organizing presentations and speaking to a live audience.

Advanced Pronunciation

Produce the sounds of professional English. We will work on your pronunciation, intonation ("melody"), stress patterns ("rhythm"), and other elements that fluent speakers use.

Simulated Course

Every session will feature a mini-course that simulates an actual university course, such as American Cinema, U.S. History., or Website Design. 

Conversation Partners

To practice the English that you're learning in the classroom, and to learn more about university and American culture, you will be matched with one or more JSU students with whom you will meet regularly under the guidance of an ELI teacher.

Also, if you're continuing to the JSU Undergraduate or Graduate program, your ELI Certificate of Successful Completion means that you won't need a TOEFL or IELTS score for admission. Just select "Conditional Admission" in your ELI application.

Schedule

Each of the seven weeks provides 12 hours of live instruction, for a total of 84 hours. As you shop for English training, remember that extensive, intensive, live instruction is the best way to learn a language.

Even better, classes meet at a convenient time for most students:
