Students study during an ELP class.

English Language Program


ELP students enjoy many quality services in the VCU English Language Program.

  • Computer Lab: Students may take advantage of the brand new ELP Computer Lab offering the latest software, including Carnegie Speech, which helps students improve pronunciation skills and accent reduction techniques.
  • Tutoring Center: The Tutoring Center offers one-on-one professional help for students in all ESL skill areas. Students may schedule an appointment to meet with a tutor or may be referred for tutoring by an instructor. Students in Level 1 also have the opportunity to participate in workshops to help them further improve their language skills.
  • Advising: Professional and dedicated advisors help ELP students in many ways, including registration, academic advice, and with referrals to other offices.
  • Activities: As language is tied to culture, ELP students enjoy the opportunity to participate in numerous field trips and activities, including trips to nearby attractions, cities, mountains, beaches, and historical landmarks. These trips are consistent with curriculum, so students are able to visit important places they have learned about in their coursework.
