ELI provides quality instruction in English as a second language, aimed at developing language and academic skills, as well as cultural awareness necessary for successful academic, personal, and professional life. ELI offers two programs: the Intensive English Program which serves international students who have come to the United States to study English in preparation for academic study at an American college or university; and the Support Services Program, which provides programs for non-native English speaking students newly admitted to George Mason University and other international members of the Mason community. In addition to the Intensive English Program and the Support Services Program, ELI provides contract services to private corporations, embassies, and government agencies.
