CWiC Advice for Non-native Speakers of English
Created by a CWiC Advisor
CWiC’s undergraduate Speaking Advisors assist Penn students with public speaking. CWiC welcomes students who want to develop their presentation abilities. Advisors typically focus on organization and visual support like PowerPoint slides, but they can also assist speakers with public speaking anxiety, debate, and delivery.
However, advisors are not language experts and do not focus on language issues. The following resources are better suited to assist speakers who want to work on their English pronunciations, in particular.
English Language Partners
Speakers can practice with Penn students who are native speakers.
Graduate Student Center Ideas
