ELC offers high-intermediate and advanced junior students the option to join a two-week Entrepreneurship Course. In lieu of English language classes in the morning, high-intermediate and advanced students, have the option to join a content-based leadership and entrepreneurship course. During the afternoon, students will participate in one of the three afternoon activities offered at their campus including Classic, University Explorer, or a specialized explorer program. The available start dates for the Entrepreneurship Course will be July 1, July 8, July 15 and July 22. This course is offered exclusively to high-level students who no longer require daily instruction in English language skills. Students will take a placement test before they register to determine if they meet the level requirement to participate in this course.
In the Classic Program, students will enjoy the diversity that each city offers through participating in a variety of cultural, sports, sightseeing, and shopping activities.
University Explorers will take college preparation classes that cover the SAT and TOEFL tests, as well as study skills and financial aid available to international students. In addition, they will visit local universities where they will participate in tours and information sessions. They will also work on essay writing.
