Prerequisite: Recommendation of current/previous instructor, college recommendation, or student request.
This Mastery ESL course is designed for English Language Learners (ELL) with limited conversational proficiency in English. Emphasis is on in-context vocabulary acquisition and the improvement of grammatical English skills. New vocabulary and grammar are then applied to spoken dialog and short written assignments.

Emphasis is on writing as a process; students will learn strategies for compensating for individual writing and language problems. The course is tailored to suit student’s individual skills levels and needs. Learning objectives include achievement in vocabulary and grammar tests and demonstrated gains through writing samples. Performance on these exams and written assignments determine student placement. Credit earned will not satisfy the requirements for an Associate Degree and will not be used in calculating the cumulative grade point average for graduation. This course may be repeated.
