English Language Institute   

"It is our mission to provide English language instruction of the highest quality, in which people can learn to their full potential, develop a deeper understanding of the United States, and always receive courteous and knowledgeable service."

Our Intensive English Language Programs quickly teach students from the beginning to advanced levels. We offer our students an excellent variety of courses, from structured skill-building to high-interest conversation to rigorous academic preparation.

The UC San Diego English Language Institute (ELI) offers courses to students age 18 years of age and older throughout the year. Testing at the beginning of the program will determine students' class placement. ELI offers 12 levels of instruction. A student progresses into the next core level when he or she meets specific language skills requirements.
