People are talking about us!

See what some former ELI students say about their time at the University of Tennessee!


“It was a remarkable experience being at the English Language Institute. ELI was an incredible environment and society, and I’m sure it will last like that for ages. The teachers, volunteers, administrators, and students were like a big family which had no boundaries or hesitation in giving a hand.”


The English Language Institute has been and is still a wonderful experience for me. Everyone is warmly welcomed here and I can safely say that I have a family in the US now. The staff is very professional and earnest, really helpful, and kind. You feel included right from the moment you step inside. All cultures are celebrated and cheerfulness is the name of the game. ELI completely surpassed my expectations and has been one of the best student experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I could write a book about my really positive experience here.”


“Improving my English at ELI was a great experience. Learning to speak fluent English in an educational, friendly, and family environment is what I think makes all the difference at the Institute. The administration is very understanding, the teachers are flexible in adapting to any level and giving the best of themselves, and the cultural diversity brings a touch to the education of the English language.”


If you attended ELI in the past, we’d love to hear from you! Let us know how you’re doing, what you’re up to, and how life has been since your time with us!
