Content

For all students who have passed their Language Assessment Exam, ENG 101 provides advanced communicative, critical analysis and study skills focusing primarily on the development of academic speaking and writing. Beyond maintaining a high level of spoken communication, the oral presentation component of the course emphasizes content, delivery and accuracy through the use of video and related technologies. Within the writing component, students are required to undertake research projects utilizing the latest available information technology for putting together proper papers. Intensive personalized tutorial sessions with instructors and peer groups, in which students receive specific assistance in all aspects of their individual needs, are the foundation of the English 101 course.
