Cross-cultural classes are designed for international English as a Second Language students (ESL) and undergraduate/graduate native English-speaking students studying at RU. The aim of these classes is to help the ESL students to be confident and improve their level of fluency in English in addition to helping native English-speakers gain valuable information about other cultures and people. The international and RU students bring their own ideas and thoughts shaped by their cultures. The classes are an exchange where both ESL and RU students discover and get to know each other. This class provides an excellent atmosphere of mutual sharing and cross-culture communication. Students build new relationships and acquire a sense of achievement.
