The ESOL program supports the unique problems multi-lingual students face, and we address their performance issues in reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
• the difficulties that students from other cultures face in American universities, which can often be over-generalized as simply levels of language proficiency.
• the cultural values, beliefs, and practices as well as the styles of communication that make it challenging for ML/ESOL students to become skilled academic writers.
• the need for classes, tutorials, workshops, and informal forums to support the students in their identities as ML/ESOL college students.
When you require a writing conference for a paper, you can refer students to our office. Students will be assigned a professional writing tutor who will work with them weekly or as often as they want to meet.
When students realize how working with someone can help improve their communication skills, their confidence increases and their learning process becomes less stressful.
We work with students, faculty, fellows, interns—anyone on the Hill—seeking to improve their English language skills.
Suggest to the students in your classes that they get involved in ESOL programs.
