English Language Coaching

One-on-One English Language Support for Multilingual Learners Available Virtually this Fall!

Champlain College provides its multilingual learners with English language support to facilitate navigation of classroom content and encourage participation and confidence in classroom discussions and group projects. Through student-centered learning offered online, the English Language (EL) Coach will support success in the four language domains: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

The English Language Coach can help you:

  • process, interpret, and evaluate language in a variety of situations.
  • effectively and efficiently articulate ideas in spoken and written language.
  • approach content-based language with greater understanding, providing opportunities for fluency development.
  • ask questions which demonstrate a deeper appreciation for content.
  • collaborate with native English-speaking peers inside and out of the classroom.
  • serve as an advocate for yourself and others, recognizing that learning is a lifelong process for all languages, even birth languages.

How to schedule an appointment:

Students may schedule appointments with the EL Coach online, and are asked to (if possible) share the nature of their work and/or concerns in advance so the Coach will know how to best prepare for the meeting.
