    Communication Skills for International Students is designed to help international students and English language learners successfully navigate their studies and communicate more effectively on and off campus. Students learn how to contribute in everyday scenarios and overcome potential communication challenges, with specific advice pertaining to academic interactions, social situations, leisure time, and job opportunities.

    This text is both unique and highly practical, as its content was assembled by an instructor with over 30 years of teaching international students and is based on international students’ points of view, lived experiences, and suggestions. Opening chapters address common intercultural issues in communication, forms of communication, stereotypes, and cultural beliefs about learning. Additional chapters cover couple culture, email etiquette, networking, using technology, acculturation, and public speaking. Students learn about daily conversations and greetings, intercultural friendships, interviewing for jobs in the United States, improving their listening skills, and more.

    Communication Skills for International Students is an exceptional resource for courses in English as a second language (ESL), intercultural and international communications, mass communication, global and international studies, and international affairs. This text stands out as a useful tool for any international student interested in building their skill set and self-confidence with the English language and everyday communication.

    Audrey Zenner holds an M.A. in linguistics/TESOL and B.A. in education with an emphasis in English and Spanish from Northeastern Illinois University. She is a certified English as a second language (ESL) educator and serves as an ESL instructor and academic specialist in the Academic Center for Excellence at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).

I had much joy learning from this book and definitely will still need to use it in the future."
