"Okay, so..." My students will recognize that beginning. What is the ELI? What is the Tutoring Center? Why do we have a blog? Are these some of your questions? Read on...
The English Language Institute (ELI) at the University of Delaware is a CEA-certified Intensive English Program that provides courses in English as a Second Language (ESL) to students from all over the world. As part of our offerings to our students, we have a Tutoring Center. All full program ELI students get two hours per week of private tutoring as part of their regular tuition. During these tutoring sessions, our students can work one-on-one with a trained ESL tutor who can help them with their language learning needs: grammar, pronunciation, reading, writing, vocabulary, speaking, listening comprehension, etc.
This blog is another way that tutors and students can work together. By adding comments, questions, and posts, we can all create a fun place to use our English skills while we learn. And who knows, we might even get some people from outside the ELI to join us. So let's get started.
