Partners and Spouses: How to submit a registration form

“I took Spoken Communication: Conversation on Context because it is important to communicate well, especially in job interviews. You want employers to feel comfortable with you. I loved learning concepts like bluffing, which is more difficult for international students to do. You’re using other parts of your brain. Other students should take this class because of all the practice it gives you with a professor who is an expert in speaking. At the end of the day, if you want to stay in the U.S. and work, it is important to have excellent communication skills.”

“I took Written Communication: Standards and Conventions because I was not confident in my writing skills and I wanted to improve. I learned the rules of writing, how to write a paper, and what the professors want. International students should take this class because they have to learn a totally different writing system.”
