American English for International Professionals

Enrollment is open for the next class of American English for International faculty, post-docs, fellows, residents, medical students, and nurses. Class meets eleven (11) consecutive Wednesdays, starting August 8, 2018.

The goal of this course is to improve participants’ spoken communication with colleagues, patients, and staff through modification - not elimination - of their international accents to conform more closely to spoken American English. In addition to the traditional concerns of accurate sounds, the classes focus on fluency (word stress, sentence rhythm, and intonation).

Instructor: Experienced ESL instructors specialized in accent modification
Start Date: August 8, 2018
End Date: October 17, 2018
Time: 5:15-7:15 p.m.
