ELLIS English Language Learning and Instruction System
Students registered in the ESL courses at St. Thomas University, and students assigned to use ELLIS for self directed English language learning, are eligible to use the English Language Learning and Instruction System (ELLIS) software in the University Writing Center, the AEC computer lab and in the E-Portfolio room of the Main Library. ELLIS combines the technology of computer-assisted training with established instructional theory. Software is provided for three levels: introductory, middle mastery and senior mastery. Each program contains several lessons relevant to everyday situations. Each lesson develops students' grammar, vocabulary, idioms, pronunciation and understanding of American culture.
