"ELI is more than just an English institute. It’s an experience that will change your life forever. As with many of you, my experience with studying English was full of boring grammar rules. ELI not only gave me the opportunity to learn English through games, coffee talks, movies, and paintball (yes, paintball!), but also gave me the chance to communicate with others student from all over the world. Now I have friends in different continents and it gave me a reason to keep practicing my English. Also, as an ELI student you become part of UF and therefore part of the Gator Nation; and you know what they say: it’s great to be a Florida Gator!"
