The ELC offers its students a variety of learning and cultural experiences throughout each quarter. Students take field trips to the nearby Rocky Mountains and other local attractions such as museums, the Denver Mint (where coins are made), musical and theatrical productions, IMAX and bowling. During the year, the ELC also holds fun activities such as picnics, a Halloween party, ice skating, and potlucks.
Class visits to local schools, businesses, TV stations, newspaper offices and supermarkets provide good learning experiences which coordinate with in-class assignments. Conversation Hours and the Conversation Partner Program provide opportunities for students to practice their speaking and listening skills.
ELC students can participate on the University of Denver’s intramural teams such as volleyball, soccer and basketball. We have been a proud sponsor of many ELC teams!
Our Graduation Ceremony and Brunch, which is held in honor of the students who have successfully completed Level 5 and GPP, is a special end-of-quarter celebration for all students. Level 5 and GPP graduates receive Graduation Certificates at this ceremony, and students who have had perfect attendance or special academic achievements are also recognized.
