HELP is part of the Department of Second Language Studies of the University of Hawaiʻi Mānoa, a global leader in research and training in the teaching of English as a Second Language. Many of HELP’s outstanding instructors come from this department. As part of our connection to the Department of Second Language Studies, research is regularly carried out at HELP.
