ESL 5 is a non-credit, open enrollment course, which is designed for students who already have low intermediate reading and writing English skills. Students in ESL 5 learn to communicate comfortably in English, build confidence in speaking and listening skills, and enhance their ability to read and write. Students can function independently in most familiar personal and work situations, show better control of grammar, and can read and interpret authentic health and job materials. Students begin to show some creativity in order to produce language. The instructor also provides help with more complex accent reduction and pronunciation.
