EPPIC Advising

Would you like to deepen your skills in academic and professional English?

If so, we invite you to schedule a meeting with an EPPIC Adviser!  Your adviser can help you create a personalized plan of action to achieve your language-related goals.

EPPIC offers two types of advising:

EPPIC Advising (30 minutes):  This type of advising involves a one-time appointment with an EPPIC adviser to discuss your language needs and goals for spoken and written English, and to design a personalized schedule of EPPIC language services. This type of advising is most useful for students and scholars who are new to Penn State, or who are new to EPPIC’s services.

Language Advising (50 minutes):  These appointments are for multiple meetings with your own EPPIC language coach during the semester (approximately every two weeks) to support your independent study of academic and professional English.  In these meetings, you and your adviser will identify your personal goals related to language development, create weekly action plans for language practice & learning, and reflect on your progress.  Language Advising provides coaching and support for your self-directed English language learning, and is best for students and scholars who are able to devote 7-10 hours per week to learning and using English.
