When you learn English at ELS St. Paul, you'll have a great opportunity to be within two major cities in Minnesota - St. Paul and Minneapolis, more commonly known as the Twin Cities. You'll study on the Minneapolis campus of the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota's largest private university. This campus is located in the city center of Minneapolis.
When you're outside of the classroom, be sure to practice your English while visiting the Science Museum of Minnesota, Mall of America, and Harriet Island!
