ESL 200a English for Academic Purposes
This noncredit course will address all skills necessary for proficiency in English, but will concentrate on vocabulary development, pronunciation, listening comprehension, speech fluency, and, in some cases, teaching. A grammar review will include the use of articles, prepositions, the tense system, modals, conditionals, and more. Audio and video tapes will be used. Regular attendance is mandatory. There are no grades given. Usually offered every semester.
