Oral Communication Skills

Within our EAP Program, we offer special training on Oral Communication, particularly for graduate students. This program provides non-credit courses and workshops in several areas such as:

  • Academic Discourse and Communication and Classroom Skills
  • Pronunciation Training for Improved Comprehensibility and Intelligibility
  • Presentation Skills
  • General Oral Fluency Development

In addition to courses and group workshops offered during the academic year, students can also make appointments for individual consultations. These one-on-one sessions are available for support on specific academic English related issues, questions, or assignments as well as coaching on language learning strategies as needed.

Our services are free and open to all students for whom English is not their first language in the School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Engineering, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.

If you have any questions regarding the EAP Program, please contact Dr. Luz Rodriguez.  Individual consultations can also be booked online.
