Nashville City Paper reports on ESL program

Nashville City Paper comments on Belmont’s ELS Language Center:

Foreign students are choosing Nashville as a place they would like to visit while they study English, which is why ELS Language Centers, located locally on the campus of Belmont University, is in need of host families for six-eight week periods.
[ELS Language Center Director John] Robinson said many students choose Nashville out of 30 U.S. center locations because the city is more inland and offers Southern hospitality and a safer environment. The center teaches 13 terms of English per year to a variety of persons, including students from Korea, Brazil, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and Ecuador wanting to apply to a college or university in the United States.
