Description

Overview:
All too often it is not just a language problem that prevents international students from communicating clearly with their professors.  Some of the communication gap might be due to lack of knowledge of email conventions that American professors take for granted that their students will use. Such conventions include the use of formal language, the inclusion of a thank you phrase at the end of the message, and the kindness when making requests of the teacher.  It is useful when teaching international graduate students to go over the expectations for email use between the student and professor. Asking the students to read a bit about email etiquette before class and then doing the following worksheet in class will help.
