Services Offered for English Speakers of Other Languages

10/12/2007 —

Students who are non-native English speakers often face a unique set of needs that cannot be met through traditional subject tutoring. Therefore, Penn State Lehigh Valley is offering ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) services to meet the needs of its growing diverse student body. 

ESOL services will help students with grammar; vocabulary (including idiomatic expressions); pronunciation for public speaking and everyday conversation; differences between spoken English and written English; and English for specific purposes such as business etiquette. Students needing extra assistance can make an appointment with Karen Paddock, an advisor in the Division of Undergraduate Studies, by calling 610-285-5074.
