What is T.E.A.?

Thursday English Afternoons (T.E.A.) is a free program that offers conversation practice for undergraduate and graduate multilingual learners at Stanford. VPUE’s student tutors (OCTs and writing tutors) are available to guide general conversation practice in the college classroom, providing tips on cross-cultural differences, basic skills in communicating in class or via email in common American idiom, and an introduction to academic speaking. You’ll have the opportunity to refine your English skills by talking with tutors and other multilingual learners.  Please note: Tutors are not trained to teach phonics or English as a second language.
