The ELP has a wealth of experience in designing workshops, courses, and entire programs of language study and cultural experiences for sponsors such as foundations, multinational corporations, universities, and government agencies. We offer custom programs for several reasons: 1] our regularly scheduled programs do not always take place when it is convenient for participants to study; and 2] our regularly scheduled programs do not always include the types of academic and sociocultural experiences that sponsors are seeking. The ELP works closely with sponsors to design a program of study that fully meets the needs of the participants.
