The University Center for Language and Literacy is offering a Speaking American English workshop for Fall 2021. The Speaking American English workshop is designed to help you reach personal communication goals and offers a supportive environment to practice the language skills that are important to you. The session will run for 10 weeks from Sept. 24 to Dec. 3, 2021. Participants will meet weekly on Fridays from 4-5 p.m.

Our certified Speech-Language Pathologists use techniques to help non-native English speakers feel more confident in their communications – whether that’s giving a presentation, or taking notes in a class with a native speaker who speaks fast. The goal of the program is not to eliminate a client’s accent, but to enhance communication skills for greater self-assurance in any setting.

Participants set their own individual goals at the start of the workshop and will work to achieve those goals using a combination of small group activities and one-on-one interaction. If the group workshop does not work with your schedule, please contact us; individual consultations are available.

What to Expect

  • An initial meeting focusing on setting your personal goals and objectives.
  • Both group and individual activities.
  • Exercises for improving articulation, rate control, and projection.
  • Increased confidence in social and professional interactions.
  • Guidance from a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist.
