Courses and Services


Students participate in at least three hours of class time weekly.   Our courses are designed to help students gain confidence in speaking English in an academic setting.  Courses focus on improving fluency, accuracy, pronunciation, and vocabulary.  Students participate in a variety of communicative activities including video-recorded oral presentations.


Students attend one-on-one meetings with their instructor to work on presentation skills and pronunciation.​

The Conversation Partner Program (CPP)

International graduate students who test into the ELP meet weekly with an undergraduate partner for one hour per week.  The purpose of the program is to offer graduate students the opportunity to improve their fluency and to learn about undergraduate life at Princeton.
