Exploit the resources UCLA has to offer to improve your communicative skills and fluency!
Intermediate-level speakers function in English but need additional help with pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. Participants in this level gain fluency through discussions on social, cultural, and international issues.
Advanced-level speakers already function well in English but want to improve their command of both idiomatic expressions in English and American pronunciation. Participants at this level increase their conversational ability through high-level discussions on social, cultural, and international issues.
Want to practice the language you are LEARNING while TEACHING your native language? We will pair you with a native speaker of the language you are learning for one-on-one conversations that take place at your leisure and according to your schedule.

For over three decades, the UCLA Office of Instructional Development TA Training Program has put on a campuswide Teaching Assistant Conference in the Fall as a means to help both new and experienced teaching assistants improve their teaching skills. Conference participants receive this assistance through general sessions, a teaching panel, and hands-on workshops that examine a variety of different aspects of teaching at the undergraduate level.
