Online English Consultations

What are they?

 

Online consultation sessions are open to all students of the University who seek for help with their English studies. Each consultation session lasts for 30 minutes and can be done using text messaging, audio and video call through “Go To The Meeting”.

Areas of support

 

The aim of the online consultation sessions is to provide opportunities to seek English tutor’s help and advice on how to improve general and specific English skills. The sessions are offered exclusively to students who might not be available to join the language activities held during the daytime at the ASLLC.

 

The sessions are mainly focused on the following areas:

 

  • Reading and Writing
  • Listening and Speaking
  • Vocabulary and Grammar
  • Pronunciation and Oral Presentation
  • Exam & study skills
