The English Language Institute (ELI) at Texas A&M University-Commerce offers students planning to study at the university opportunities to enjoy a variety of cultural and educational activities while improving their language and academic skills.
The English Language Institute is currently offering a summer session for students who are ready to study at the Advanced level. Students who successfully complete the Intermediate level of the English Language Institute (ELI) at Texas A&M University- Commerce are automatically eligible for the summer session. Students who are new to TAMU-C must meet exam requirements.
Full-time students or holders of F1 or similar visa, will enroll in the Academic English Program which uses academic content to teach English and academic skills.
Part-time students or holders of F2 or similar visa, may only enroll in the American English and Culture Program. The classes use recreational English to teach English and American culture.
Students in both programs are encouraged to participate in the Conversation Partner Program. The ELI provides opportunities for students to interact with native English speaking university students in the afternoons. Students should make an appointment with a conversation partner in the ELI Office, Hall of Languages Room 317.
