English Language Training Program


International Graduate Students

Fall 2009


We are delighted to advise you of the following opportunity to improve your English language skills this semester.  Beginning on Wednesday, September 30, 2009, the Tufts English Language Programs will be offering a Language Training Course for International Graduate Students, at no cost to participating students. 
The Tufts English Language Programs have been providing language training to international students from all over the world for nearly thirty years.  With the support of the deans of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering, the program has expanded its services to include a language training program for Tufts University international graduate students who wish to improve their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.  
The program will be offered once per week during the fall semester and will begin on Wednesday, September 30, 2009.  The program offers language instruction classes for 90 minutes per week that focus on writing and conversational skills in English. The program lasts for 10 weeks.
This is a wonderful opportunity to work on language skills in a collegial environment. There is a maximum enrollment of 15 students in the class and the students accepted into the program will come from across the disciplines at Tufts University.  Post-doctoral candidates are also eligible.  
The instructor for the course has an excellent background in professional language training programs and has been teaching English courses at Tufts for the past five years.
Students will be selected based on availability.  Particular consideration will be given to students currently working as Teaching Assistants (TA), or planning to become a TA in the fall of 2009.   Most students will have a TOEFL score of between 550-630 (CBT 213-267 or iBT 80-109), but all are welcome to participate. 
To apply, please submit the attached registration form to Kevin Paquette, Kevin paquette tufts edu, Director, Tufts University English Language Programs, 108 Packard Avenue. If you have any questions, please contact Kevin Paquette.
