ESL/EFL Interest

Here are some online resources tailored to help EFL students adjust to the US academic writing environment and conventions.

The Writing Studio - In the Libraries

The Writing Studio offers Duke University undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to meet with trained writing tutors to discuss individual writing concerns. As a studio, this is a place for you as an artist/writer to work on your art. By discussing your work-in-progress with a trained tutor, you will be better able to move toward developing the awareness and skills that will enable you to improve as a writer.

Graduate and postgraduate student tutors from a number of different disciplines staff the Writing Studio. We have several specially trained tutors who work with non-native speakers. Many of our tutors have had some experience serving as teaching assistants in their own departments, and others have had some tutoring experience as well. All tutors go through extensive on-going training. We are committed to providing you with the best help we can. Check out this video to find out more.

In addition to our individual services, we also provide group workshops on different aspects of the writing process. To see a list of upcoming workshops, or to sign up for a workshop, visit our website.
