How can the speaking center help my students who are Non-Native speakers of English?

We provide the only space on campus where English Language Learners and Non-Native Speakers of English can have a low-stakes conversation about communication with Native Speakers. These one-on-one conversation consultations provide speakers with a place to practice English while considering nonverbal elements of conversation such as eye contact, gestures, facial expressions, use of space, silence, body movement, cultural artifacts, clothing, and gender difference. On march 14, 2020, we shifted to providing this service online.

Over the years we have expanded our support for Non-Native English speakers.
