Learn English in Florida!

For nearly four decades, ELS has offered English language and university preparation classes on the Eckerd College campus. Tens of thousands of students from all over the world have benefited from the Eckerd College-ELS connection, enriching both ELS students and the Eckerd College community.

Classes, on-campus housing, and ELS offices are all centrally located at the Continuing Education Center. Housing is also offered with American families through our Homestay Program.

The Eckerd College experience for ELS students offers many unique opportunities:

  • Meet Eckerd students at social activities, campus lectures, sporting events, as well as informal gatherings.
  • Join the Conversation Partner Program linking ELS students with Eckerd students to discuss language and culture.
  • Study with Eckerd College faculty and earn a non-credit certificate in International Business and Global Relations. For qualified students only.
