As the only intensive English language program in the metropolitan Detroit area, the English Language Institute (ELI) of Wayne State University (WSU) has specialized exclusively in teaching English communication, cultural orientation, and academic preparation skills to non-native speakers of English from all over the world for more than 40 years.

The ELI uses the newest language-teaching methodology and the most up-to-date audio, video, and computer technology available, including a remote-access language lab. Our small classes and highly trained instructors make it possible for students to improve their English rapidly and effectively.


The mission of the English Language Institute is to prepare English language learners and scholars to succeed in a global society by providing comprehensive and innovative intensive language instruction for personal, academic or professional communication in the community and the University.
