Cultural Immersion

The ELP provides students with these additional after-class activities to practice English, have fun, and be immersed in American culture:
  • After class activities: During the week, students meet to practice English and have fun together outside of class. These activities provide additional opportunities to practice English in a relaxed way. Students play sports together, go out to eat, get coffee, and visit various places around the UNF campus.
     
  • Friday trips: Each semester, the ELP offers field trips to local Florida attractions such as Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Wet and Wild, Alligator Farm, and others. In addition, the ELP offers volunteer activities which are a great way to learn more about the American culture while practicing English. Students who volunteer will receive a volunteer certificate at the end of the semester and use these experiences to enhance your resume.
     
  • Conversation Partner Program:ELP students are paired up with a UNF student to be Conversation Partners. Conversation Partners volunteer with ELP students to help them practice English, teach them more about American culture, and be friends.
