Welcome to the NTC Office of English for Academic and Professional Purposes (EAPP). Our program is dedicated to fostering our students' professional and academic excellence and promoting interaction and communication both within the Tulane University community and with the global community as a whole. Our program is composed of two main branches: EAPP for international students, and TESL for current and future ESL teachers.EAPP
The EAPP program teaches: 1. how to learn language effectively; 2. how to solve communication issues as they occur; and 3. how to engage in social, academic, and professional discourses with confidence. For more information go to english.tulane.eduInternational Students
If you are interested in perfecting your English, please visit English for Academic and Professional Purposes. English language classes are currently only open to students enrolled at Tulane University.Conversation Partner Program
The Conversation Partner Program pairs an international student with an American student or fluent English speaker to allow them to practice their English in casual, conversational setting and to help them adjust to life here at Tulane. This program helps to bridge the gap between the International and American communities on campus. Partners are created within the first few weeks of every semester, and pairs are expected to meet at least five times per semester, for at least an hour each time. This is a great way to meet people you wouldn't ordinarily meet and help an international student have the full Tulane experience. For more information, contact us at LearnEng@tulane.edu.For the Spring semester, partners will be paired February 1st on a first come, first serve basis.
