Academic English (Orating, Reading and Listening) Assistance for All Instructors

What is "Academic English"?

The “academic” version of any language, including English, is not natural or native for most people. It takes time and patience to acquire, and this happens throughout a student’s school years, including in college and beyond. The CSUSM Language Learning Center and Writing Center help all students on campus gain greater fluency and comfort in this “unnatural” variety of English that is crucially important for success in college and in many professions. We recommend that students make a commitment to ongoing visits. Visits can be as weekly or biweekly appointments and/or attending workshops we offer each term.
