The UPrep add-on quickly prepares students to attend an English-speaking college or university and can be added to any of ELI’s fantastic full-time courses.

Student's voice

I strongly recommend English Language Institute for intensive, affordable English language classes at the perfect location in San Francisco. I had an excellent experience with ELI in the evening classes: well-prepared teachers , friendly atmosphere and interesting social events, such as an unforgettable Halloween Party. My English developed very fast and helped me improve in my career
