We’ve all heard that English is the “universal language.” But do you know why? Perhaps it’s because those who know English typically make more money than those who don’t. Or maybe it’s because a fourth of the world’s population speak the language at a useful level.
But no matter the reason, one thing is certain — learning English sets people up for better opportunities educationally, socially, economically, and more.
That’s where Speaking Partners come in.
For non-native English-speaking PathwayConnect students, improving English skills is a primary purpose of the PathwayConnect experience. So, in addition to English-learning activities built in to PathwayConnect’s academic courses, students also enhance their English speaking and listening abilities through the Speaking Partner Program.
