The ELI offers English classes which are designed according to the latest research in the field. The core classes include Listening/Speaking, Grammar, and Reading/Writing classes. Students are placed into levels for each skill at the beginning of each term according to their proficiency in each skill. The ELI also offers elective courses in TOEFL, Business English, Pronunciation, Conversation Strategies, and other special courses that vary by term. Classes at the ELI are small, averaging 12 students, allowing very individualized instruction. Many classes also meet in the UF computer labs weekly, completing a variety of language activities.
In the TOEFL Preparation class, students practice and discuss exercises that appear on the TOEFL test. Only higher intermediate level and above students may take the TOEFL class. All ELI classes, however, are intended to improve students' general language proficiency and test scores.
In the IELTS Preparation class, students become familiar with the design of the IELTS by practicing listening, academic reading, academic writing, and speaking.
