English Communication Program - Fall 2017 - Practise Speaking English for Post-Docs (10 week series)

About the ECP

CIE's English Communication Program (ECP) is a non-credit program that gives U of T students who speak English as a second language the opportunity to further develop their communication skills in English, gain insight into Canadian culture and life at U of T, and share cross-cultural experiences.

Classes are facilitated by volunteers with teaching, cross-cultural, and international experience.

Please take note of the start date, time and duration of the class series you are interested in (some classes start in a different week or end at different times due to availability of instructors).

Most classes take place at CIE (Cumberland House, 33 St. George St.).


Practise Speaking English for Post-Doctoral Researchers (PD1)

This series of classes gives International Post-Doctoral Researchers practice talking about their research and other topics in English. The class will cover English grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary expansion and will provide opportunities to practise speaking. The goal is to help participants improve their English speaking and listening skills important for academic presentations, answering questions, interviews, and conversations with co-workers, supervisors, and new friends in Canada. This class is for learners who currently have high intermediate English proficiency. 
This series is on Wednesday evenings from 5:30pm to 7:30 pm starting September 27.
