Speak UP is an advanced English speaking group designed for international undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, and fellows. Speak UP aims to provide a supportive space in which to discuss and practice ‘real-life’ academic communication at Penn State.
Each week, the Speak UP group focuses on a particular situation/setting in university life where language plays a central role. Sessions are guided by experienced EPPIC instructors who offer examples of what people ‘do’ with language in each setting, and provide commonly used phrases and communication strategies for each. Participants practice with new knowledge and build social relationships with international and American peers through group discussion, role-plays, and games.
