English Language Institute (ELI)
The mission of the English Language Institute (ELI) at Northwest Nazarene University (NNU) is to provide English-as-second-language speakers with opportunities for improving English language skills for academic work and familiarization with the American university environment. The English support courses develop students' language skills and cultural competence and prepares them for success in academic courses taught in English.
The ELI courses rely on experienced and professionally trained ESL instructors who deliver academic English courses. Each course is designed to prepare students for academic study in English by developing their English language skills for reading in an academic context, writing research papers, and comprehending academic lectures. These courses will provide a support for success in traditional undergraduate courses.
