Taking classes at the ELI helped me improve my English skills and gave me confidence to take the next step in my academic career. I am currently a PhD candidate in Cyber Security at Morgan State University. I really appreciate the happy environment the ELI offered, where I studied with encouraging and knowledgeable teachers who never tired of answering our questions at any time. I’d like to encourage other international students looking to improve their English skills to join the wonderful global community at the ELI.

This summer, our English Language Institute team traveled to Zambia for two weeks and partnered with WISE Zambia, a local NGO, to visit 4 schools in the rural western province. We conducted classroom observations, met with school officials and head teachers, and provided hands-on workshops focused on teaching methodologies and creative practices. In between school visits, our team was able to attend the graduation ceremony of a local teachers’ college, do some sightseeing, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
"Before coming to NDMU, I never really noticed how much being aware of your world (socially, politically, environmentally, etc.) impacts each individual. As a future art therapist, knowing how various aspects of our world intersect will aid in the service and care that I give to patients and clients." What's Next: NDMU - Gradate School Art Therapy
NDMU taught me the skills to not only be a competent nurse but, how to be a compassionate nurse. Compassion is what prevents nurses from burning out...Compassion allows nurses to always think of their patient's situation and feelings.

Alum, NDMU Class of 2019TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)
NDMU has helped me gain confidence in myself as an educator. Before entering the MATESOL program, I wasn’t sure if I was outgoing enough to be an educator. However, after gaining more knowledge in ESOL, I feel like this is exactly what I was meant to do.
