This past week, full-time IECP students accomplished an impressive task: they took a total of four midterm exams! For the first time, the IECP program delivered four midterm exams, including the usual Academic Interactions and Academic Literacies tests in addition to exams Grammar & Speaking Skills and Grammar & Writing Skills. By the end of the week, many students (and faculty!) were tired and ready for a well-deserved break.
However, in addition to providing the usual language-learning of the classroom, the IECP has been offering many opportunities for fun social interaction. For example, on September 6 there was the always-popular pizza party in the Ritenour lobby.
On September 13, the IECP Tutoring Center hosted its first Conversation Table of the semester in Pond Building. Conversation Table is a great way to practice speaking in English in a relaxed environment. The next Conversation Table will take place Thursday, October 11 at 4:30 in 322 an 326 Pond Building. We hope to see you there!
Finally, on September 18 a group of very creative IECP faculty and staff attended the traditional visit to 2000 degrees in downtown State College, where they painted pottery. Great job artists!
Keep up the great work in your classes, everyone! And, as always, check email and social media to stay up to date with our great social events.
Happy fall, ya’ll!
