at ELS. You will also know in advance whether you qualify
for advanced level courses offered by ELS, such as the
Complete Prep Program for the TOEFL® iBT, or ELS GRE®
or GMAT® Prep Programs.
The PAT evaluates your grammar, listening, speaking and
writing abilities in 30 to 50 minutes, online. You will receive
immediate, computer-generated feedback on your grammar
and listening skills after completing the test. And you will
get teacher-generated feedback on your speaking and writing

     University Certificate Program
     Studying on an American university campus creates special
     opportunities; among these is the chance to meet American
     students and “try out” university classes. The University
     Certificate Program permits Intensive English students
     enrolled at ELS Level 107 and up to participate in designated
     university classes when university is in session. Participants
     meet American students in a college classroom setting; learn
     about business, communication, international politics and
     foreign policy; and improve their listening comprehension
     and use of formal vocabulary. A course certificate signed by

Homestays
All ELS Centers offer homestay accommodations with an
English-speaking host family. ELS host families are carefully
screened to ensure they provide a pleasant and safe “home
away from home” for our students. Living with a host family
can help you learn English faster while experiencing
American customs and culture firsthand. Students often
develop very close relationships with their hosts —
friendships that can last a lifetime.
