This Semester the English Language Program is Offering:
Classroom Observations and Consultations
ELP instructors are available to meet individually with International Assistants in Instruction (AIAs) to discuss the challenges and concerns they face as new teachers and nonnative speakers. IAIs are offered the opportunity to have their class observed and/or videotaped by a member of the ELP teaching staff. After the observation, the ELP instructor meets with the IAI to provide constructive feedback. If language issues persist, the IAI can continue to meet with a member of the ELP staff to develop strategies and techniques to address the issues. To schedule a meeting with a member of the ELP staff contact email@example.com or call (609) 258-6929.
Join one of the ELP discussion groups for international graduate students and post docs. Our discussion groups give students the opportunity to meet in small groups to discuss a variety of topics. Participants choose topics and lead the discussions. An ELP instructor facilitates and offers constructive feedback on language issues. A Princeton undergraduate student will join the discussion. The focus of the group could be expanded to practice presentation skills as well. Groups meet for an hour a week throughout the semester. For more information or to join a group, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the English Language Program at 258-6929.
Error Correction Workshop
Each week we will look at high frequency errors common to non-native speakers. The program will include pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, and pragmatic errors. Through targeted activities students will have the opportunity to improve the error in focus. Each week one language learning strategy will be discussed.
The first meeting will be on October 17. This program will be open to any international graduate student who is not currently enrolled in an ELP course. You are not required to pre-register and can attend as your schedule allows. If you would like to receive weekly reminders about the workshop please send us an email at email@example.com.
