writing skills as well as their knowledge of English grammar
as they finalize preparations to become independent students

The course provides students opportunities to improve
several skills: (a) reading college-level texts in English,
(b) writing in English to meet academic expectations common
to colleges and universities in the United States, (c)
writing succinct answers to questions on the readings, (d)
recognizing points of English grammar in various texts, (e)
recognizing points of English grammar in their own writing,
(f) using their knowledge of English grammar to improve
their own writing, (g) recognizing grammar points in some
language examples that surround the student daily, and (h)
using some of those examples to learn. Overall, this course
provides opportunities for students to enhance their
sensitivity to and their awareness of language in academic
contexts in the United States.
