ESL-092 Coll/Univ Prep Reading & Writing

ESL-092 Coll/Univ Prep Reading & Writing

8.5 hours lecture, 1.5 hours lab, 4 credits


ESL 092 is a continuation of ESL 062, and meets the English language requirement of the majority of College and University Transfer programs at NIC. This highly interactive reading and writing course is of interest to students who can already communicate quite comfortably in English but wish to further refine their academic English reading and writing skills to the level required for entry into further education and training at NIC. One focus is the further development of clear, grammatically accurate and effective written expression for a variety of academic contexts, including summaries, longer essays, written responses, and guided research-based writing. To this end, points of increasingly complex sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, style, and format will be studied, with special emphasis being given to areas of particular difficulty for ESL students at the college-entrance level. The second focus of this course is the development of higher level reading and lexical skills through the study of longer authentic texts and focused vocabulary work. Academic skills such as note-taking, summarizing, and reference/citation will also be covered.


Prerequisite(s):

  • IELTS 5.5 or Assessment by ESL Department
