ELC Blog


Your guide to the English Language Center, Philadelphia, and American Culture

Welcome to the English Language Center Blog!

We are excited to announce the launch of our new blog!

New entries will be published each week on various topics. Topics will include American culture, life in Philadelphia, Drexel University, and what it's like to be an ELCer! We will provide you with tips, information, and resources to help you with your English studies. You will also get a chance to meet ELC staff and students (past and present). 

We would love to hear from you, so please feel free to email us your questions and comments. Contact us if you're a former ELC student and would like to be featured in Alumni Highlights.
