The English Language Program provides support for a variety of populations at NewSchool in order to help students with their English language skills. Support takes many forms such as tutoring, workshops, and classes.
English Language Learners
For international and domestic students whose first language is not English, the English Language Program can help with a number of items, including:
- Understanding and working on specific class assignments
- Understanding instructors’ requirements and feedback
- Identifying and working on problems with English language skills including reading, writing, listening, speaking, and pronunciation
- Developing skills and strategies for use in the classroom and with coursework
Writing Support for Native Speakers
NewSchool recognizes the importance of reading and writing in education, life-long learning, and in the professional lives of designers. The institution works to support reading and writing across the disciplines. The English Language Program, therefore, is also available to help native English speakers with the challenges they may face with reading and writing the language.
