About This Center

The ELS English Language Center in Miami is located on the campus of Barry University in Miami Shores, a suburb of the exciting city of Miami. Students enjoy year-round sunshine, warm ocean waters, and sandy beaches. Students live where others vacation as they learn English in Miami. They also experience a melting pot of cultures, which makes this place known as the “Magic City” so eclectic.

Miami is perfect for outdoor activities such as windsurfing, snorkeling, jet skiing, and boating. The culturally-rich city is also home to art, music, film and food festivals, shopping, concerts, and sports.
