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