Seventh installment of ELP Lecture Series to be held on July 18

In an effort to provide opportunities to listen to real English outside the classroom, the English Language Program, a part of the university’s Department of Foreign Language Education, offers lectures in the ELP Lecture Series. In this ongoing series, each lecturer chooses an accessible topic and explains it in English which is neither too difficult nor too easy.

The seventh lecture in the series, “Oysters,” will be held on Friday, July 18. ELP teacher Aaron Dods will open the door to the secrets of the world’s most popular shellfish and explain the major impact they’ve had on mankind. Come learn about oysters: how to order them and how to appreciate them. You’ll be the envy of all your friends.

The ELP Lecture Series is open to students, faculty, staff, and anybody else whose English skills could use a bit of a challenge. This is a great opportunity for you to have a little overseas study experience right here at home. The first five lectures in the ELP Lecture Series can be watched here:
