EPPIC Advising

Would you like to improve, sharpen or expand your skills in academic and professional English?

If you are an international student, visiting scholar, or post-doc,  we invite you to make an appointment with an EPPIC Adviser to find out how EPPIC can help you achieve your goals.

EPPIC offers two types of advising appointments:

  1. EPPIC Advising (30 minutes):  These are single appointments with an EPPIC language specialist adviser to discuss your current needs and interests, and to design a personalized schedule of EPPIC language services in the current semester. This type of advising is most useful for international students and scholars who are new to Penn State, or who are new to EPPIC’s services.
  2. Language Advising (60 minutes):  This longer-term advising includes multiple meetings with your EPPIC adviser 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.

 

EPPIC Advising appointments are open in summer 2022!  To schedule a meeting with an EPPIC adviser, please write to Dr. Bryan Buschner at bzb5377@psu.edu.
