ESLG 004 - Writing Module II

4 hrs (Sem I, II, Summer)
The fourth module of the series is a continuation of writing skills necessary to matriculate in classes taught wholly in English. Students will work on self-monitoring effectively when using basic grammatical structure and will be introduced to more complex structures. U.S. cultural values and thinking patterns are introduced through discussions, readings and writing. The course will include conversation and oral presentations; discussions centered on American culture; writing essays, letters, reports and research on the internet; and pronunciation. The course will take an integrated approach in developing listening and reading comprehension skills, pronunciation, writing, and grammar skills. Varied activities will include projects, journals, compositions, video presentations, discussions and dialogues, cultural and educational trips, lab time, and homework. Authentic and academic material will be incorporated. This course is repeatable until successful completion with a FOCAL score of 84% or higher. Eighteen class hours per week (four-week course).
