English Language Academy

DePaul's University English Language Academy (ELA) is a comprehensive learning community that provides intensive instruction to a diverse student population to help them master English. Classes are small, allowing students to receive significant individual attention. The ELA’s comprehensive approach focuses on language skills, academic and social life, and American culture to help students prepare for a successful university life at DePaul, and thriving careers in the global community.
