Peer Speaking Practice Groups

Ask to Join a Group

The Peer Speaking Practice Groups offer international graduate students opportunities to practice their English oral communication skills. Groups will meet weekly for 50 minutes.  Each group will commit to a four-week block. Facilitators will negotiate possible topics with each group. Possible themes could include small talk, networking or presentation skills, cultural topics, general conversation, etc.  Students can sign-up for one group per month.

* Groups will be formed every fall and spring semester.
