Spoken English Skills Class
For Postdocs and Visiting Scholars
In Fall 2020, the CSLC will offer a free English academic communications class for Notre Dame postdocs and visiting scholars who are non-native speakers of English. This class will focus on speaking skills in an academic context. Examples include:
- Academic presentations
- 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 Tuesdays & Thursdays at 7:30-8:30pm via Zoom.
This semester, the class will be split into two seven-week sessions:
- Session 1 | Spoken English Skills: Everyday Language (August 11 - September 24)
- Session 2 | Spoken English Skills: Professional Language (September 29 - November 12)
Students may register for one or both sessions. Each class will be limited to 15 students.
