The Intercultural Communication Center is a support service for students in full time academic work; we do not offer workshops for visiting scholars. Our workshops are aimed at nonnative speakers whose fluency is already well above average (the recommended TOEFL cut-score for students at CMU is 100, indicative of an advanced level of fluency). We do not offer traditional English as a Second Language (ESL) language classes.
Visiting scholars often find that they benefit from attending ESL classes in the Pittsburgh area. Many of these classes are either free or very inexpensive. Information is available on our website: ESL classes in Pittsburgh
Visiting scholars can use the following resources. In addition, we can provide individual advice about resources that may be useful while in Pittsburgh; feel free to call our office.
