All ELI instructors are university graduates with degrees in English and teaching certificates. They have substantial experience teaching in a multilingual and multicultural academic environment.
A team of 2 instructors teaches the Pre-Intermediate 1 to Advanced 2 levels. One of the instructors focuses on grammar structures and reading comprehension skills, while the other instructor, a native speaker of English, teaches listening comprehension, speaking and writing skills.
Groups are small (11-15 students) and interactive: professors use state-of-the-art educational technology and a variety of modern techniques of English language instruction. The learner-centered environment at the Institute encourages participation, initiative, creativity, and responsibility.
Upon successful completion of an ELI course, students receive an AUBG Certificate of Completion, issued by the ELI, with the final grade included. Each certificate is unique to facilitate tracking and to discourage forgery. The certificate is signed by both of the student’s language instructors and the ELI Director and bears the AUBG stamp.
Certificates are awarded during the final class meeting.×
