English Corner

The English Corner is one of the joint efforts of the ESL department and the ELC to give students increased opportunities to speak English in a more natural, friendly atmosphere. It’s a place where students can come to speak English and engage in a variety of activities in English with less pressure than the classroom. Activities are organized by faculty of the ESL Department and staff of the ELC.
