About This Center

The beautiful campus of the University of Missouri is a picture-perfect place for English classes in St. Louis. Students can learn English in St. Louis while enjoying the large, open campus lawn and participate in casual outdoor activities such as Frisbee, volleyball, and soccer.

Despite being a thriving city with a vibrant local culture, entertainment, and various attractions, St. Louis has a relatively low cost of living. This means when students are not in the classroom, it’s easy to afford what St. Louis has to offer, such as live music, scenic parks, and sporting events.
