Previously known as Language Lab, our Practicing English Proficiency (PEP) programme is for students who would like extra language support. Students are encouraged to subscribe to the PEP Moodle page (no key needed) for resource lists and up-to-date information about events and workshops being run as part of the PEP programme.
PEP workshops are held on Thursdays 12:15-13:00 in Anthropole 1018 (teaching weeks only). These workshops are primarily for strengthening students’ oral proficiency and confidence, though we do tackle different themes, grammar points, and activities, to give you skills that also transfer to your writing and general comprehension abilities. We strongly encourage students to let us know if there are particular things they would like to work on. Please check the Practicing English Proficiency Moodle page for the schedule, which changes every semester.
If you would like to practice with particular grammar features or listening comprehension, we encourage you to visit the Centre de langues, lso located in the Anthropole building. They have a multimedia space (Anthropole 1060) with an extensive searchable repository of exercises (PlurieL), as well as other resources. All students are welcome to use the lab during the périodes de libre accès. You can learn more about the apprentissage individuel libre here.
In complement, the English department participates in the CLAD language accreditation process, for students who would like to attend HEP after completing their degree at UNIL. For more information about CLAD, please visit the main CLAD website or the department’s information page.
For more details about available support, please contact Andy Reilly (Andrew.Reilly@unil.ch).
