What is a Workshop?
The Listening and Speaking Center offers workshops everyday for students who want to improve their English communication skills.
In a workshop, the workshop leader provides a topic for discussion, and the students will either talk as a group or in pairs. The leader also answers students’ questions and helps keep the conversation going.
There is no homework in stand-alone workshops, but preparation may be required for workshops meeting more than once.Length:
Most workshops are 50-minute stand-alone sessions, but some workshops on special
topics may require students to sign up for more than one session.

Types of Workshops:
Conversation Workshops concentrate on using informal English and have general topics such as relationships, traveling, students’ cultures, and other everyday topics.
Specialty Workshops (“Listening”, “Speaking clearly”, “Special Topics”) include conversation practice, but the goal is to provide students with more information about vocabulary, idioms, and listening and speaking skills.
ESL 251/253 Support Workshops are designed to help ESL 251 and 253 students understand the topics covered in their classes better and keep building their oral communication as well as grammar and writing skills.
