English Language Unit
Are you an international student? Are you worried about your English? Don't worry. We're here to help you.
If English is not your first language, you may feel worried about your ability to communicate or your academic writing. We're here to help you improve your English, reach your full potential and boost your confidence. We can arrange an individual tutorial with you, or you can join one of our short courses. All our services are free to use and available throughout the year.
If you're a current student, please go to the Intranet to access our resources (login required). You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to book an individual tutorial or visit us in our office at Gatehouse (GH.101) on Newton Park campus.
"The ELU have the best and most supportive team. They look at the student as an individual, and with their guidance, you will find that you have learned much more than you would have thought possible."
We hold a number of language surgeries across our Newton Park, Corsham Court and Locksbrook campuses. You don't need to book in advance - you can simply turn up to one of our sessions with your specific questions.
If you're a current student, please visit the Intranet for details on drop-in language surgeries (login required).
Develop your reading and writing skills in our language-focused workshops. You'll learn about the skills you need to achieve academic success at university including planning and organising assignments, turning your reading into writing, and developing a critical approach in your work.
Listening and speaking skills
In our language-focused sessions you'll have the opportunity to meet other international students and practise and develop your English listening and speaking skills. You'll develop your spoken confidence and improve your vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation, which will help you to listen more effectively in lectures and contribute to discussions and seminars.
If there are any other language skills that you would like to study, let us know by emailing email@example.com.
