You may register here or just walk in. Most non-native speakers have trouble with articles and prepositions, and almost everyone has questions about commas. We will start there and then address any grammar issues you may have.

  • Speaking & Pronunciation for Non-Native Speakers of English. Thursday evenings starting Feb 3, 6:30-7:30 p.m., KAML 409, register here or just walk in. This long-standing study group is looking forward to adding new members! We usually begin with pronunciation exercises such as pronouncing similar vowels or linking your words. We also talk about American expressions and idioms. Most of our time is dedicated to conversations and discussions.
