Resources for ESL Students

Words of Wisdom

There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away.

— Marina Ivanova Tsvetaeva

On-Campus Resources

In addition to the University Writing Center, there are a number of other on-campus resources that provide academic help that may be of interest to students for whom English is a second (or secondary) language.

Online Self-Study Resources

Aside from on-campus services, many online resources offer English language support and training. The following resources, separated into six categories (writing, speaking, listening, reading, grammar, and vocabulary) may be helpful in your English self-study efforts. Be sure to check out the UWC's resources as well, including both web pages and videos:
