Graduate Speaking Clinic

The ELI Graduate Speaking Clinic serves U-M graduate students, faculty, staff, and scholars who want to improve their spoken English pronunciation, fluency, and accuracy. It provides a flexible framework in which learners can address their spoken English goals individually.

The Speaking Clinic is a short term resource for consultation on any aspect of speaking, for example, if you wish to increase the accuracy of your professional vocabulary, enhance your readiness for a presentation, augment your voice projection, or understand and repair communication breakdowns in particular situations. No academic credit is awarded for Speaking Clinic participation.

Students who have completed ELI speaking courses or who are referred by an ELI faculty member will have scheduling priority. The number of visits typically ranges from 1 to 5 sessions in a semester, depending on a participant’s goals and the demand for and availability of slots.

The Speaking Clinic is offered in Fall, Winter and Spring terms.
