Description

10-week course offered in the Fall term. Meets once a week for 90 minutes.

In this highly-interactive course, you will increase your fluency, comfort, and confidence communicating with different types of English speakers in both formal and informal situations. You will learn to express your ideas more clearly and fluently, respond effectively to opposing viewpoints, and clarify misunderstandings. This course is ideal for you if you are a graduate student in your first year and are living and studying in an English speaking environment for the first time. It might also be right for you if you are a more advanced student but have limited opportunities to use English in your daily life.

  • In-class discussions
  • Online discussions
  • Office hour role plays
  • Listening assignments
  • Interviews with community members
