Spoken English Skills Class

For Postdocs and Visiting Scholars

In the Spring 2021 semester, the CSLC is offering a free English academic communications class for Notre Dame postdocs and visiting scholars who are non-native speakers of English. This class focuses on speaking skills in an academic context. Example skills include:

  • Pronunciation
  • Academic presentations
  • Conversation 
  • Socializing in different contexts
  • Grammar (minimal/focused)
  • Body language
  • Academic vocabulary 

Classes are taught by a Notre Dame TESOL scholar as part of their final teaching practicum. They will meet on Mondays & Wednesday at 4:30-5:30pm via Zoom. 

This semester, the class will be split into two seven-week sessions:

  • Session 1 | Spoken English Skills: Everyday Language (February 3 - March 22)
  • Session 2 | Spoken English Skills: Professional Language (March 24 - May 10)

Students may register for one or both sessions. Each class will be limited to 15 students.
