International graduate students: Build authentic conversation skills with ESS seminar

Educational Services for Students will offer a seminar titled “Communication and Culture: Building Authentic Conversation Skills” for international graduate students next semester.

In this six-week seminar, students will learn the elements of basic interpersonal communicative skills through interactive discussions. In class, students will explore spoken English skills by learning gestures, words and phrases, intonation, and context for specific situations they may encounter in American culture. The seminar will allow for small and large group discussion.

Students can pick from two sessions:

  • Session one: Jan. 27-March 3
  • Session two: March 10- April 21
