Student Reviews / Testimonials:
"I spent one session in Notre Dame of Maryland University English Language Institute. The teachers are very professional and diligent. They helped me adapt to American college life, accept the American study methods and American culture, and they also helped me pass the TOEFL test.
This experience helped me a lot. I'm now getting my Montessori Education master degree in Loyola University Maryland. I still miss the time with the teachers and my classmates from all over the world in Notre Dame ELI very much."
"I am learning a second language and interacting with many people from different cultures. I just want to say “thank you” to the Congregation of School Sisters of Notre Dame and to all teachers and staff at the ELI."
"..You don’t only learn through reading a book. A lot of in-class activities such as watching films, team work activities and out-of-class activities such as field trips are organized with the purpose of teaching you English. You not only learn a language, but also a bunch of cultures (the American culture and the culture of every of your fellow citizen of the international community).
I'm now a student in an undergraduate program at a local college. I went to the ELI and I experienced all of what I told you above. My time at the ELI was a wonderful time and I miss that time. I miss the class environment we had there and I miss my teachers and my friends.
One thing is certain, I learned a lot from the ELI and I took that knowledge with me. It’s that knowledge that has enabled me to listen to the lectures at college without struggling a lot.."
