The ELI now offers in-person speaking and writing help for international undergraduate students in the Speaking and Writing Studio.
Speaking Studio: Meet one-on-one with an experienced ELI faculty consultant to receive feedback and support with any area of your spoken English, from fluency and confidence building to pronunciation practice. You may use the Studio to develop a self-study plan for improving any element of your communication in English, or you may focus your studio consultation on a specific speaking event, such as an upcoming class presentation, job interview, or networking event.
Writing Studio: Meet one-on-one with an experienced ELI faculty consultant to receive feedback and support with any area of your written English. You may use the Studio to better understand writing assignments, to brainstorm ideas, to begin drafting and outlining, or to refine your drafts for submission. The Writing Studio can be used for academic papers or for professional purposes (e.g. cover letters, personal statements, research statements, scholarship applications, etc.). You can also get individual help with your specific questions about English grammar and usage.
Eligibility: Currently registered undergraduate students in any U-M school or college may attend up to four (4) Studio appointments per term.
