This course focuses on the reading/writing problems of students who have completed either ESL 3 or ESL 13 but require additional practice prior to proceeding to the next level of study. It will provide the student with skills necessary to succeed in subsequent ESL, English, liberal arts, and career and technical education courses. There are two components to this class: students will read authentic pieces of writing, written for native speakers of English, and will focus on vocabulary development and comprehension. Writing assignments based on the readings will also be done.
