La Salle at a Glance

La Salle University’s English Language Institute (ELI) was established to provide the highest quality English language instruction for international students and business professionals.  Our courses focus on all aspects of language learning proficiency – listening, speaking, reading and writing to help you meet your individualized goals. 

The ELI at La Salle University recognizes that learning English requires more than just studying in the classroom.  Studying at La Salle’s ELI will give you the opportunity to interact with Americans and learn more about American culture.  You will also be encouraged to interact with other students and share experiences as a valuable part of your education and for learning English. 

The ELI is a part of and located on the campus of La Salle University, where ELI students will attend classes and enjoy meals alongside other university students. ELI students are encouraged to participate in campus activities as well as events organized by the ELI.  This will enable you to meet other students while enjoying campus activities. 

The Philadelphia area where La Salle’s ELI is located is a major city with world class sports teams and sporting events, dining, theatre and arts, shopping, and entertainment.  Philadelphia is a vibrant city well known for its music and historical value in U.S. history.  It is about 1 hour from beaches, 2 hours from New York City, and under 2 hours to Washington, DC.
