Teachers dedicated to your success

A quality education starts with the teachers who deliver it. All our instructors are University of South Florida faculty with years of university teaching experience, field work and research. Many of them have taught overseas or have been international students themselves; thus, they know how to provide the best learning experience for you.

With small class sizes of 20 or fewer students, you’ll get the individual attention you need to thrive in the classroom and beyond.

Practice, practice, practice! That’s the advice from English Program Coordinator Laura Murphy for students learning a new language. She can provide you with all the help you need when you come to USF.

"I enjoy being around people from many parts of the world and learning about their fascinating cultures," she says. "Also, as a teacher, I love being able to see students improve their English skills over a certain period of time — it is very rewarding."

What advice would she give to a student learning English as a second language?

"I would encourage students to not give up and to use any chance they can to practice conversation."
