Registration for Summer 2014

NativeAccent Access
International students and scholars may sign up for a free NativeAccentâ„¢ speech training software account to use over the summer. If your application is accepted, access will start on June 23rd and continue through mid-September.

All available accounts have now been filled. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please send an e-mail message to elp@northwestern.edu, and we'll get you added to the list. You will be notified when an account becomes available for you.

We also want to make you aware of two options for summer study that do not require registration, Conversation Corner and private tutoring:

Conversation Corner
Practice your English this summer during our weekly Conversation Corner! Join us for weekly informal conversations about American culture, led by ELP Associate Director Erin Leddon. You will have a chance to practice your English, ask questions about the English language or American culture, and meet other international students. Feel free to bring your lunch. All international students and scholars are welcome and no registration is required!

Where: Linguistics Department, 2016 Sheridan Road, Room 202 (second floor, to your left as you leave the stairs)
When: Fridays, 12:30-1:30pm, starting June 20 through August 15

Private Tutoring
We maintain a list of private tutors in the area who are willing to work one on one with nonnative speakers of English for an hourly fee. Private tutors are not affiliated with Northwestern University: the listings are provided for your convenience only. Fees vary, but the range for one-on-one services is generally $25-$60 per hour. If you are interested in setting up an appointment, please contact one of the tutors listed on our private tutors page. Tutors may be contacted either by telephone or e-mail, see specific listings for details.
