English Language Learning Center

As Seattle University expands to offer a full range of English-language programs, the name English Language Learning Center is replacing the name Culture and Language Bridge program. The ELLC is now home to three programs:

  • The English Language and Culture Bridge (ELCB) provides training in American academic English and culture to prepare its students to successfully meet the rigorous challenges of Seattle University‚Äôs degree programs. 
  • The Intensive English Program (IEP) is a stand-alone English language program that helps with English language learning for those who are not ready for college admissions. 
  • Custom programs are offered for groups wishing to learn English in the United States. 

For more information on any of these programs, please contact Michael Harpending, director of the ELLC at
