English Language Proficiency Clinic

The ELPC is a specialized speech and language clinic associated with the main Kent State University Speech and Hearing Clinic. Students from our graduate program in Speech Pathology see clients individually. 

We work with non-native English speakers to improve oral English skills, including:

  • Perception and pronunciation of the sounds of English
  • Rhythm and intonation in patterns of English
  • Associated speech production skills in lecturing and presentations

Our clients include graduate teaching assistants from many departments at KSU, other KSU graduate students, visiting scholars, and non-native English speakers from the surrounding community.

Our graduate speech pathology students receive basic training in work with non-native English speakers, and have an opportunity to participate in basic and applied research projects at the L2 Speech Perception/Production Laboratory.
