  • Grammar and Conversation: In this grammar course, students develop the form, meaning, and use of English grammar structures. These structures will help students understand and communicate better in social and academic situations.
  • Pronunciation and Conversation: The pronunciation and speaking class is designed to help non-native speakers of English speak clearly and effectively, increase self-confidence, and learn speech monitoring abilities. The focus of this class will be on becoming more comfortable listening to rapidly spoken English and learning common expressions and idioms used in formal and informal contexts. Students practice these skills in listening and speaking homework assignments and in individual or group presentations.
  • Professional and Business English: Skills for Success: The instructor will guide students through a hands-on experience in writing effective professional e-mails, creating their own American-style résumé, participating in mock job interviews, engaging in negotiation meetings, setting up an effective professional social media profile and more. The course will be open to intermediate level English speaker and above.
  • Professional and Business English: Negotiation Skills: The instructor will guide students through a hands-on experience in professional and business negotiations. The course will prepare students to discuss jobs and projects, manage conflict, make and respond to proposals, and understand the needs of all sides.
