ELPE Oral Skills Overview


Prior to each semester, the Center for Teaching Excellence facilitates an ELPE Oral Skills Overview for interested international students who would like general assistance with preparing for the ELPE.

The ELPE (English Language Proficiency Exam) is a recognized language test for international graduate students who want to be eligible for a teaching assistantship. This workshop will describe what to expect in all three ELPE Oral Skills test sections (Interview, Reading, and Presentation), explain scoring techniques used by the judges in each test section, and provide general practice tips for each part of the test. There is a special focus on how to prepare an outline for the presentation in the 20 minute period provided before the presentation section of the test is conducted. Finally, general public speaking tips are shared with participants. Registration is open to all who are interested.
