ELI Connections

ELI reaches out to our community in Springfield, Missouri

English Language Institute provides various activities to our students to connect with the Missouri State campus community and the Springfield local community. One of the best methods for our students to improve their English is to stay connected to native English speakers and use English in everyday life as well as in the classrooms. We encourage Springfield residents and MSU students to get involved in ELI activities to meet our students from all over the world in an exciting way! Please learn more about how you can help our students and they can help you to explore the world!!

Thank you for your interest in this Program! We are currently not accepting any more applications for the Fall semester. Please check back again in January when we will begin the Spring application process.

We hope to hear from you in the future!
