The English Language Immersion (ELI) program includes a variety of English language courses, mixed with Bible and theology classes. The program is designed to improve the student’s English in preparation for future studies.
ELI is different from typical ESL programs in that it exists to enrich the Christian life of intermediate and advanced English language learners. Alongside classes, students are immersed in college life, having the opportunity to attend chapels and participate in student ministry teams. It is an approachable way to practice English in a Christian environment.
This program is a great option for students who don’t meet our minimum TOEFL or ILET requirements. Upon completion of ELI, students who meet the acceptable academic standards may be eligible to enter a traditional PLBC program.
