|Mastering a second language requires repeated practice over time. Self-paced work can provide hours of practice to supplement ICC classwork.|
During self-paced work, students can work at their own pace with a variety of materials. Self-paced work is intended both to supplement ICC classes and to provide the many hours of individual practice that are needed for improvement in a second language. Students interested in self-paced work are strongly encouraged to attend an Orientation to Individual Work session at ICC (see semester calendar for times).
Our library includes more than 50 titles in the area of pronunciation, US classroom culture,
academic presentation skill, developing technical and teaching language, and job interviewing in the US.
The web provides an infinite number of self-paced materials to help nonnative English speakers develop academic fluency. We recommend that student look for on-line videos in their academic fields. In addition, the ICC can provide a list of recommended web sites that can help students improve their command of academic English and US classroom culture.
