Did you know that the CLAS offers free, interactive, and fun English Language Workshops? These workshops are designed for students looking to learn about and improve their English skills. Each workshop is held in a supportive, small-group setting with an experienced tutor specializing in a particular subject. If you are an international student or English language learner, these workshops could be a great way for you to not only improve your grammar and succeed in your classes, but also to learn some of the culture associated with the English language. These workshops differ from working one on one with a writing tutor because you don’t need to bring in a paper or assignment; the workshops provide general knowledge about the English language as a whole in a fun and collaborative way. Here are some of the details on these awesome workshops:
Pronunciation: In this workshop, we will do exercises and activities that will improve your English pronunciation.
