Dp you have PAL appeal?

by Mary Landolt, Center for English Language Programs

Are you a friendly native English speaker or international student who has been here a while? Are you studying TESL? Are you majoring in some other kind of international studies programs? Are you interested in other cultures?

Every semester at HPU the English Foundations Program has students from more than 20 different countries studying English at four different levels in preparation for undergraduate and graduate degree programs. It also has a PAL program that helps students who are interested in other cultures connect with classmates.

 

 
The international PAL program was formed last fall for American and international students who were interested in helping new students in the English Language Programs adjust to HPU and Hawai‘i.
 
This semester, fall 2003, the Pals are applying to become an HPU club registered as the International Pal Association (IPA). They are also planning to have more fun activities, and they will have a dynamic new co-advisor, Barbara Hannum, assistant professor of English (ESL). A specialist will also lead a workshop to help enhance cross-cultural awareness and sensitivity.
 
PAL would like a core group who could be available to help new students arriving in late August. To sign up to be a Pal contact Mary Landolt at mlandolt@hpu.edu or stopp by her office, MP 130.
