Academic (For-Credit) English
The Academic English as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) curriculum prepares nonnative speakers of English to function successfully in institutions of higher education in the United States. You earn college credit for academic ESL/EFL courses. Coursework provides knowledge and practice of academic reading, grammar, listening/speaking, and composition. Among other skills, you learn to make presentations to groups, write a research paper, and take notes from classroom lectures. Attention is also paid to your cultural awareness, particularly that of the academic environment.
Students studying in the U.S. on F-1 visas cannot take ESL through College and Career Readiness.
