Cultural Activities & Events
English language study is about more than just classroom learning. English Learning Institute (ELI) orchestrates frequent cultural enrichment activities to help immerse international students in the local culture of their host country.
ELI incorporates exciting events and activities to make learning fun. From weekend trips to Washington D.C. and the Great Smoky Mountains, to pottery making and oil painting classes to day trips to local museums, the cultural activities are designed to bring students out of the everyday classroom and put their English language skills to a practical test in everyday scenarios.
There are no added fees to take part in these enriching activities. Students can choose up to two events per term as part of program enrollment—with the option to participate in as many as desired for a small charge. You can see some of ELI’s previous cultural activities and events below.
