Saturday English Program

Course Descriptions

Courses in this program are conveniently scheduled on Saturday mornings and afternoons. They are designed for non-native English speakers who want to improve their English language skills for personal and professional reasons.

ACTIVE GRAMMAR COMMUNICATION

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.

SPEAKING & PRONUNCIATION

The pronunciation and speaking class are 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.
