ENG 083 - Listening and Speaking Skills for Speakers of Other Languages

This ESL (English for Speakers of other Languages) course is offered through the continuing education and workforce development division. It prepares non-native speakers of English for the listening and speaking tasks they will encounter in college credit classes. Areas of instruction include phonetics, pronunciation, listening comprehension, idioms, cultural rules, differentiation of informal and formal speech, and conversational skills. Emphasis is placed on the areas of spoken English where non-native English speakers have the greatest difficulty. Students are placed in this course as a result of their computerized listening skills assessment and must register with an advisor in student development. Students who need ENG 083 must complete this course and any other required ESL course with a grade of “C” or better before taking the placement tests, which determine placement in college credit courses. Lecture Hours: 26. Usually offered in the fall and spring.
