Peer Speaking Practice Groups

 

Ask to Join a Group

 

July 2020 groups are now full. Please keep an eye out for more groups in September! 

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.
