Established in 1945, the English Language Institute (ELI) was one of the first university-based language learning centers of its kind. Our faculty are specialists in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and will provide individualized attention to help you succeed. The ELI offers a comprehensive program of English language instruction and evaluation. We emphasize an integrated approach, ensuring that students gain a foundation in language structure and become comfortable and confident in communicating effectively in English.
The English Language Institute is where people from all over the world come to learn, practice, and advance their English skills. No matter your level of proficiency and experience in English, you will be able to find a course or program that works for you and your schedule. We are very proud of our long history of supporting international students at NYU and visitors to our great city to achieve their English language goals.
