English Language Support

International undergraduate students at NYU who wish to practice and improve their English Language Skills are invited to participate in Conversation Circles and Writing Review sessions.  These are held weekly in small group settings (6-8 people per session). 

Please rsvp to reserve a seat through the links below.  Walk-ins are always welcome if seats remain open.  We encourage you to attend regularly in order to achieve the greatest benefit from this series of workshops, but sign-up is weekly. 


Conversation Circles

Students are encouraged to participate in discussions on topics chosen by our Learning Assistants (with your input and participation). Learning Assistants will be facilitators in the conversation, but you will be doing most of the talking. This is an opportunity to engage in thoughtful conversation with peers while increasing comfort and fluency.


Writing Review

Students will use their own writing samples to learn to identify their pattern of errors in order to correct or avoid them. In each session, the Learning Assistant will focus on one or two "common errors" and provide an explanation of the selected grammar points, and then the session will open up to answer questions and review students' writing samples. Students will learn to proofread their own work. Students must bring their own drafts or writing samples to each session.


If the sessions fill, please send us an email if you would like to be placed on a waitlist for possible additional sessions or alternate times.

If you are unable to attend the session you signed up for, please cancel it 24 hours in advance so we can open the seat up to another student. To cancel your reservation, send an email to University.Learning.Center@nyu.edu with your name and the specific workshop name, time and date.
