English Language Learners

The Writing Center is a wonderful resource for students, faculty and staff who do not speak English as a first language and for all other English language learners. We are happy to assist ELL writers at all levels in every discipline on any number of writing related issues, including:

  • Clarifying assignments.
  • Understanding genre expectations.
  • Brainstorming ideas.
  • Understanding difficult texts.
  • Preparing for class presentations.
  • Improving your ability to communicate in English.
  • Completing non class writing tasks.
  • Understanding WMU’s plagiarism policy.

In addition to the Writing Center’s appointment and drop-in consultations, there are also a number of helpful online resources that can provide information and useful practice for ELL writers:
