Fifteenth installment of ELP Lecture Series to be held on November 25

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 fifteenth lecture in the series, “The Truth about Health and Fitness,” will be held on Wednesday, November 25. What does the word “healthy” mean to you? Eight hours of sleep? A well-balanced diet? No carbohydrates? What does the word “fitness” mean to you? Vigorous exercise three times a week? Five times a week? Every day? Or does “fitness” mean being able to touch your toes with minimal effort? Everyone has some preconceived notions of what health and fitness are and how to achieve them. How much of this information is true and how much of it is anecdotal evidence that has been misinterpreted over many years? This presentation by ELP teacher Nick Delgrego will look at some of the common misconceptions about health and fitness and will include some suggestions on how to improve your overall well-being.

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 fourteen lectures in the ELP Lecture Series can be watched here:
