To this day to me you are an example of hospitality and true love and care for students. I think your understanding of what international students really need goes beyond just knowledge, but you have a gift of FEELING people and it really is amazing.
All of my experiences in the U.S. have been special and unique and I’m very grateful to the ELI staff for making it easier for me. As with everyone moving to a new country, at the beginning I was full of questions and quite scared. There were many reasons for it; about the culture, the … Continued

It has been a great experience for me at the English Language Institute. It is challenging, fast paced, and fun at the same time. I have been learning a lot from my classes. The ELI faculty is very helpful and supportive.

The English Language Institute has an excellent program and an outstanding faculty and staff. I have made much improvement to my listening, comprehension, pronunciation, and writing skills. At the ELI, the students are encouraged to be engaged in activities on and off-campus like the student council where we organize events and humanitarian activities. I am very thankful for the ELI faculty and staff. Their encouragement and kindness have helped me to get the best from this experience.
Learning at the English Language Institute helps you not only how to speak English but also, how to work with others. Although someone might think it would be a waste of time, I would quote that even the path to nowhere will lead you somewhere.
The ELI has been a milestone for me since I arrived in Syracuse. I came as a student in the BSMP (Brazilian Scientific Mobility Program) with the goal of studying architecture. Only first, I had to learn English, a challenge which the ELI has helped me to face. The entire staff is very professional and not only has guided me through the academic world in U.S., but has also become family! They never hesitate to give me all the support I need.

Even if you are already a professional, the ELI offers you an opportunity to improve your English language. They place you in the proper academic level according to your experience and will work with you to increase your language skills.
Attending the ELI is like integrating into a new family. I am making significant progress in my academic English in record time. The staff is committed to each student without distinction. They are willing to help each of us with all our academic and personal needs. I assume that the school is quite unique.

I am lucky that I choose to study in the ELI and have met so many good instructors. I hope the instructors will continue to encourage students in the future! They encouraged me and I received a graduate admission letter from S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
I am a LL.M student at Syracuse University College of Law. Before the LL.M program, I attended Legal English at the ELI where I learned about American legal terminology as well as briefing legal cases and discussing legal matters. All have increased my self-confidence and made the LL.M program easier. Thanks to this program, I have always felt one step ahead of my classmates in the LL.M.
