About Us


The English Language Institute invites you to learn about our program. The University of Florida ELI has offered intensive English courses for over 60 years.  We offer English instruction that prepares you for using English in an academic or professional context as well as the culture that is all around you. Learn the language, live the culture, and love the Gators!
