The University of Pennsylvania English Language Programs (ELP) offers instruction in English as a second or international language and exposure to the cultures of the United States. We serve adults whose purpose is to learn English for a variety of social, professional, academic, or personal reasons.

We also offer testing, consulting services, and cross-cultural training. In addition, we contribute to the ESL profession as a whole by our work as researchers, presenters, and educators. More»
