International students hone English language skills

August 26, 2008 : University Advancement staff

Liberty University’s English Language Institute (ELI) has a new home at the Lynchburg Inn and Conference Center. The move to the nearby hotel is advantageous for the program since 90 international students are being housed there this fall.

ELI offers an intensive program in English language studies that helps international students face the challenges of living and learning in an unfamiliar language and climate. The courses give them an opportunity to practice and to learn how to communicate skillfully in English. There are currently 85 students in the program.

Liberty began leasing the hotel, formerly a Ramada Inn, in June and is housing 280 students in 147 dorm-style hotel rooms. The hotel is also serving as an educational center for the Liberty’s growing Distance Learning Program.
