ESOL II - English for Speakers of Other Languages II

This course is an extension of the skills learned in ESOL I. It focuses on syntax, continued vocabulary development, reading, listening comprehension, speaking and pronunciation skills, and writing multiple-paragraph compositions that demonstrate organization of ideas, use of a thesis statement, and supportive elements. Intensive grammar instruction is emphasized to support academic writing skills. This course contributes to skills needed in mainstream classes and standardized tests such as PSAT, SAT, and TOEFL.
