Non-Credit: English as a Second Language for College and Careers (High-Intermediate)
The Certificate of Competency in English as a Second Language for College and Careers (High-Intermediate) prepares students to advance to higher levels of ESL, both credit and non-credit mirrored, by providing foundational English-language skills for students to progress towards higher level coursework as they continue their educational pathways. Students will be exposed to academic skills courses for learners of English as an additional language in which they will learn and practice how to identify main ideas in short texts, apply words learned in their given form by using them to write original sentences, and correctly use a wide range of grammatical forms, including modals in the past and present to express advisability, regret, and certainty, and appropriately use verb forms.
