Communicating Effectively with OSU International Students
March 11 and March 13, 2013
This is a two-part workshop, facilitated by Bob Gilmour from INTO OSU and sponsored by the Memorial Union Organization Inclusive Community Initative. The workshop offers some guidelines on how to identify the level of language proficiency of an international English as an Additional Language (EAL) student on the OSU campus as well as some practical tips for successful communication. Participants learn about the different programs in which international students may register and gain an understanding of the different levels of language proficiency that exist within those programs. Participants also consider how their own language and culture, as well as the language and culture of the student, impacts face-to-face communication.

This new simulation by the Human Services Resource Center can help you to better understand the experiences of this unique and ever-growing group of students on our campus. Sponsored by the Memorial Union Organization Inclusive Community Initiative and the Human Services Resource Center.
