ESL Workshops

The Center for English as a Second Language periodically holds academic workshops designed to improve international students’ understanding of American language and culture. The workshops are informal and typically present a video and a follow-up discussion. Regardless of whether students are taking formal ESL courses, participation in the center’s workshops can be a great way to learn in a more casual setting and meet other international students.

Examples of Past Workshops

  • Academic Writing

  • Idioms in the Sitcom “Friends”
  • Dating in the U.S.
  • “Crash” and Racism in the U.S.
  • Learning New Words
