WESL-002 English as a Second Language (ESL) - Level 2

Hours: 84
Fee: Free
Instruction: In-person/Lecture

Program Description

This course is designed for advanced beginning students of English as a Second Language. Emphasis is on the further development of reading, listening, comprehension and speaking skills in English. Through a broad range of student-centered activities, students are given an opportunity to practice and reinforce important grammatical structures and patterns. While these activities take various forms-role-plays, extended guided conversations, questions about the students' real world, and topics for classroom discussion or debate-they are intended to actively engage the students in meaningful conversation based upon their interests, backgrounds, and imagination.

Another focus of this course is on reading and writing development in English through exercises in the text, dictations, spelling drills, written class work, and homework assignments. Learning to write one paragraph well is emphasized.

Students who successfully complete Level 2 can continue on to ESL Level 3
