WELCOME TO VIRTUAL EPIC:
ENGLISH PARTNERS IN COMMUNICATION
We enjoyed talking to the people who registered for EPIC 2021. It was entirely virtual. Face-to-face communication through Zoom was better than mask-to-mask communication in a room!
Here are some comments from recent participants in EPIC:
“This program helped me a lot in acknowledging American culture, and I hope it will help more people in the coming semester. It gives us an occasion where people from different backgrounds respect and talk with each other.”Li Wei
“This is a great program! I love the team.”Jaturong
“Great appreciation for this EPIC program and I really enjoyed it!”Ming
“I think the program is useful and meaningful to me. I can feel my English is better than months before. Especially, I think teachers did really excellent jobs. It was a really happy experience with all participants.”Minho
“Thank you very much for conducting the EPIC program every year. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and I learned a lot from all the instructors and my classmates! I am grateful and truly appreciate the effort that the instructors put towards constructing each and every lesson plan for us. I would like to return next year as well.”Vishaal
Our teachers have adapted very well to the virtual format. They continue to address important topics such as –
- Appropriate topics for starting a conversation
- Ways to keep a conversation going
- Small talk
- The elevator pitch!
- How to disagree politely and offer a different opinion in a discussion
- Vocabulary and idiomatic expressions for daily English conversation in person or online.
Just a few of the benefits of learning English with EPIC:
- All levels of ability are welcome!
- Experienced teachers and native-speaking conversation partners
- Opportunities for speaking practice.
EPIC will return in the spring of 2022. Please watch this website for information. WHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE A QUESTION?
