Founded in 1993, the English Language Institute (ELI) at the University of Montana serves international students with limited English proficiency seeking to improve their English language and academic skills in order to pursue studies at UM, at another institution of higher education, or for professional training purposes. ELI is housed within the Office of International Programs (OIP), and provides academic year and summer instruction, and tailored short-term English language training programs whose durations vary. ELI has a population of 100 international students from 30 different countries. Over the past years, ELI has taught students from more than 44 countries, the majority of whom continue their studies in the UM system or other American institutions.
At ELI, students study English for 20 hours a week. There are six levels of instruction ranging from beginning to advanced levels (1-6). Students' classes include the study of all language skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing, and understanding) as well as lessons in grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary development, cross-cultural issues and integrated skills. Students in the advanced core classes (levels 5 & 6) can take either a TOEFL preparation course or another elective that focuses on current local and global topics of interest. Students at these levels may also enroll in one university undergraduate course through the optional ELI Undergraduate Bridge Program.
