Workshops

Our workshops are small group sessions designed to help you strengthen your speaking, pronunciation and presentation skills. Workshop topics and times vary weekly; check our calendar to see availability.

For Fall 2020, we are offering four series of workshops:

  • Let’s Meet – The College has gone virtual, so why not meet other college students virtually!  Drop in and meet other students from your program or other programs.  Let’s meet each other! 
  • Let’s Talk – Small groups where you can learn and practice conversation skills that will help you in any situation – formal or informal.  This workshop will also include presentation skills.   
  • Let’s Read – Come and practice your skills in reading, pronunciation, vocabulary, paraphrasing and finding main ideas. 
  • Let’s Practice – Whatever you need practice with, this group is for you!  Essay writing, APA formatting, and grammar.  Each week practice a different skill! Practice makes perfect.
