Michigan Tech GLAS Spring 2021 Appointment Schedule is Now Available

by Sarah Isaacson, GLAS Program Director

Graduate Language Assessment and Support (GLAS) is a free program designed for international graduate students who wish to improve their English communication and cultural skills.

Through small-group conversations that matter, students gain experience participating in class discussions, responding to questions, and listening effectively.

GLAS coaches work with students to help them better understand U.S. university expectations and gain insight into what students and instructors expect from each other in the classroom. GLAS students who are already teaching can practice lectures or lab presentations with their coach. All international graduate students are welcome to attend and participate in the program.

The GLAS Spring 2021 appointment schedule is now available. Visit our page to learn more and to sign up for a weekly appointment.
