Students Benefiting from New English Language Program at WJU


International students enrolled at Wheeling Jesuit University are getting a little extra help learning how to speak English from the University’s faculty and staff thanks to a new program.

WJU Director of International Student Services, Taras Strutynsky, said that the Individual English Conversation Program helps integrate American and international students on campus.

“Students meet with a WJU faculty or staff member a few times a week for an hour and to simply have a conversation in English. This gives the student the opportunity to relax and talk freely,” said Strutynsky.

 In addition to the program, Strutynsky said that the new International Conversation Club is available for students who are not comfortable with the one-on-one setting who want to talk in a more populated, sociable group.

Some students also are part of WJU‘s English Language Institute (ELI) – a program specifically designed to immerse and teach international students the English language year round. 

Currently more than 150 international students attend WJU from 26 countries.
