Learning a New Language

English as a Second Language (ESL)

Language is not limited to verbal or written communication. The ability to communicate through accents, slang, non-verbal and body language will be an important aspect of your success. You are encouraged to continually develop your communication abilities. Your peers, attendings, chiefs, churches, community organizations, friends and family can all provide support.
