Community-Engaged English Language + Culture Program

ELI 560 students help Habitat for Humanity build a house in Ypsilanti in Winter 2016.

Improve your language skills and gain greater understanding of US society and culture. Learn about the local community and practice communicating with Americans from diverse backgrounds.  

ELI’s Community-Engaged Language and Culture Program includes 2 courses: an on-campus course offered in the Fall and Winter terms, and an off-campus field experience offered in the Winter. 

The field experience is an extension of the on-campus course during which students interact with Americans from diverse backgrounds through a placement with a local organization, practice language skills, and reflect on their experiences.
