English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESL)

ESL 0141  Basic College English Skills  (4)                                                    summer
This integrated course helps non-native English speaking students at the intermediate and high intermediate level to develop their skills in grammar, writing, reading, listening, and speaking. These basic academic skills are taught, practiced, and tested in the classroom, the writing laboratory, and the language laboratory, which has ESOL software. Students develop academic writing skills through weekly assignments. Reading comprehension and vocabulary skills are taught through analysis of general and technical reading selections. Students must achieve at least a B and demonstrate improved skills on post-course placement tests in order to take ENG 1060. This course is writing-intensive; 2 hours of lecture, 2 hours of language laboratory, 2 hours of writing laboratory per week. Placement assessment of intermediate to high intermediate level of English and the Vermont Tech writing placement test are required to determine placement level. Credits do not count toward graduation.
