International Students' Language Workshop - Idioms

Assisting International Students with Their English Language Skills

These sessions are designed for students whose first language is not English but all interested UNH Law students are invited to attend.

In each workshop, we will review the principles governing the topic at hand and work on practice exercises. No preparation or homework is required.

Each meeting will focus on a specific topic dealing with:

  • Grammar
  • Paragraph and sentence structure
  • Vocabulary and word choice
  • Punctuation
  • Writing style
  • Any other English language questions that participants may want to cover outside their regular classes
