ELIP courses assist graduate students

Feb 26, 2009  

The Department of Linguistics' English Language Improvement Program (ELIP) is encouraging faculty and staff to raise awareness among graduate students of its programs providing additional help in writing, speaking or presentation instruction.

The courses -- previously offered through the Ohio Program of Intensive English -- now fall under Linguistics' umbrella through ELIP. They are offered every quarter, including summer, and count for graduate credit.

About 100 students benefit from the courses each quarter, ELIP Director Dawn Bikowski said. While speaking courses are directed toward international students, American students can benefit from the writing courses, she said.

ELIP writing classes allow students to receive individual attention, work on papers related to their disciplines and learn to use sources effectively. They also assist students in developing critical reading skills, developing their academic voice and using complex grammatical structures.

ELIP'S oral communication courses give students an opportunity to work on pronunciation and practice giving presentations related to their disciplines.

ELIP courses are provided at no charge to full-time students. They do not affect GPA as long as credit is attained. For international students, a TOEFL score of 500 PBT/62 iBT is required.

More information is available from Bikowski at 740-593-0201 or bikowski@ohio.edu.
