Many of RIT’s international students enroll in classes organized by the English Language Center, established in 1979. The center teaches classes at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels in grammar, reading, writing, conversation and vocabulary. Students can also choose from a variety of electives including American culture, business communication, writing research papers, presentation skills, understanding academic lectures and pronunciation. Here, students participate in the Listening and Discussion class taught by instructor Nicole Martello. To read a story about RIT’s global community, go to www.rit.edu/news/story.php?id=49182.
