Class Schedule

WELCOME!

VETP is for MSU International Students and Scholars and their adult family members. 

Classes are conversation and discussion.  They are NOT formal English instruction.

Classes are "drop-in".  You do not need to register. Just come to a class when it is convenient for you!  Classes are held in Room 307 International Center

You may attend as many classes as you'd like, but please contact the tutor before attending to let them know you are coming.

Email VETP at vetp(at)msu.edu if you have questions.

  •  "I start my sessions by asking what questions you have, what have you done the past week.So, know that you will be asked to tell the group something about yourself. My most frequent activity is to choose a current article from the newspapers. Usually the New York Times, but sometimes the Lansing State Journal or the MSU State News.  Class members take turns reading aloud from the wall screen.   We look at vocabulary and I ask you to summarize what has been read.  We will sometimes break into small groups of 2-4 people so you can have more chance to practice your speaking."
