Good English School

I've found taking classes in the SHU English Language Institute very helpful for me. I've just finished 2 semesters of tuition and can state that my English has improved significantly. In addition, next semester I'm going to take TOEFL preparation course here. I can confidently recommend SHU ELI.

ELI

I came to ELI to polish my English in fall 2015 and study for TOEFL, and after two semesters i was ready to start an academic program in my field!

The half of the year i spent in ELi was fun and practical. I made friends from all over the world and had a great time in the NYC that is so close to the campus!

Thank you ELI for such a wonderful program, full of knowledge and experience!
