Brought to you by Odyssey

Monday, 6:30 PM ET  

Virtual via Zoom



Can immigrants teach immigrants English? Yes, they can. But there is a lack of trust and confidence in both parties, as immigrants might not fully understand the depth of English. Can native speakers teach immigrants English? Of course, they can. But they might not be fully aware of the challenges immigrants face in every aspect of their life and what the best approach they can take is. The course, English for Foreign Professionals, was developed by an immigrant mother and a native speaker daughter, which applies the format that mimics the daily conversation between an immigrant and a native speaker. Different challenges have been taken into consideration during the design of the course. 

In addition to some familiar topics such as job searching and networking, students will discuss trending topics such as ChatGPT, the banking crisis, Big Tech layoffs, the looming recession, and the unpredictable housing market. 
Has anybody told you that you should improve your communication skills? 

Have people often asked you to repeat what you have said? 

Have you heard someone say you were too shy or cold? 

Do you feel there is a glass ceiling as an immigrant? 

Are you feeling frustrated with your job search? 

Do you often feel tongue-tied at a meeting? 

Then, this course is for you!
