Did you know that the University of Saint Joseph class of 2020 features speakers of 18 different first languages? That's part of the wonderful diversity of USJ where our multilingual students are native speakers of everything from Spanish to Gujarati to Creole and many more.
Are you among the many students from the US or abroad who are native speakers of a language other than English?
You may have specific questions about written academic English, about pronunciation, or even about American culture. Questions like: Can the word tomato be used as verb? How do I pronounce tomato? Why do people throw tomatoes at bad comedians?
If you have these or any other language questions, then ESL Services is here to serve you!
