English for Bilingual Students

ENGB 0003 College Reading and Vocabulary I

This beginning level college reading course is specifically designed to meet the needs of bilingual students whose first or familial language is not English. While students may exhibit intermediate to advanced speaking skills, placement scores at this level indicated a need to work on reading skills vital to college success. The primary focus of this course will be developing an academic vocabulary, improving reading and critical thinking skills, and discussing cultural issues related to language acquisition. Successful completion of this course with a "C" or better will allow entry into ENGB 0033.

Prerequisites: appropriate COMPASS test scores or approval of ENGB Coordinator.
