From our friends down the hall at the Oral English Proficiency Program (OEPP):
Undergraduates are invited to take part in short, informal conversation activity with the international graduate students in ENGL 620 who are preparing to become teaching assistants at Purdue. This activity gives ENGL 620 students practice speaking English in a casual setting.
All that’s needed is 50 minutes of your time and the desire to chat with interesting students. And, of course, a love of cookies is helpful, but not required!
Lots of times available throughout the day, and all sessions will take place in the Krannert (KRAN), G-21. To register for a session time, please visit http://www.itap.purdue.edu/apps/oepp.
If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Other opportunities to assist your future TA’s in becoming more comfortable with English are listed on our website: http://www.purdue.edu/oepp/volunteer/undergrad/index.html.
