ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROGRAMS
  • The English Language Programs is ready to assist students in 3 specific ways until the end of the semester in an online format, and beyond, either online or face-to-face.
  • English Connections is an informal and free conversation group. Previously, it was called LEAF. It meets every Friday from 12-1:30 through Zoom. Click here for the zoom link.
  • English Coaching is done one-on-one or in small groups. It is fee-based and the most cost effective way is for students to form small groups and pay together. Click here for the link to English Language Programs.
  • Editing services are for scholars, faculty and staff that use English as a second language. You will find additional documents and emails attached to this letter that outline additional resources on working remotely, time management, graduate school deadlines, and The Chronicle of Higher Education’s Coping with the Coronavirus.
