ESL Grammar Workshop Series


Each semester, all international students at Illinois are invited to attend the ESL Grammar Workshop Series hosted by students in EIL 422 English Grammar for ESL Teachers and ESL Services Program.

Dates and Registration

Please visit the UIUC ESL Grammar Workshop website for the registration form and a complete list of the dates/topics offered for this semester.


ALL sessions are FREE for all international students at UIUC


Sessions will be held at Foreign Languages Building (in the basement)


The following topics are the most difficult areas for ESL students and thus are generally covered in the workshop series:

  • Sentence Structure
  • Articles
  • Tense & Aspect
  • Prepositions & Phrasal Verbs


Each session will be two hours. Each session will include both a lecture/whole-class discussion and hands-on practice in smaller groups. There will be 2-4 instructors for each session, so students will have opportunities to ask for one-on-one help during small group activities.

Contact Information

Please contact Hannah Kim, ESL Writing Program Teaching Assistant, at for more questions on registration or contact Jin Pennell, UIUC ESL Writing Program Curriculum Coordinator, at if you are interested in advertising this opportunity as an instructor or a private tutor working for international students at UIUC.
