We have such wonderful staff, students & volunteers here at GRCC that want to be helpful to our International students success.  Campus Talk if one of the ways they are so generous with their time.

Campus Talk is where International students can come for however much time they’d like and just chit chat with these volunteers to get more practice speaking English outside the classroom setting.

As they say, PRACTICE makes you perfect & learning a new language is no exception. 🙂

Please have your students take advantage of the help offered.  Print these two fliers out & paste them on your refrigerator as a reminder of the great help available to them!
