On behalf of the ELI staff, let me say thank you for your interest in our English program. Here at ELI we are excited and happy to help students improve their English, learn about American culture, and enjoy the U.S. college experience. We welcome students from all countries to attend our ELI. It is our goal to make studying in the ELI a truly fantastic cultural experience for you and for the students at GSW.
The ELI is located in Americus, Georgia on the campus of Georgia Southwestern State University. The campus and town is known for being a friendly and safe place to live and study. Students and their parents can feel comfortable about the studying here because the environment is perfect for students who want to learn and grow.
The English Language Institute (ELI) at GSW was established in 1988 and provides a well-designed curriculum to meet the needs of non-native speakers of English. We focus on helping students improve TOEFL scores and conversational English. Our instructors are well experienced and dedicated to helping our ELI students not only to improve their English proficiency, but also to solve cultural and social problems. Being located on the campus of a state-supported institution in a small town, the cost of attending the GSW ELI is less than the cost of ESL programs located in big cities or those operated by large universities. I hope you will choose to attend GSW ELI. If you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail, fax, or phone.
