This course is part one of a two-step sequence dealing with written English skills. The course addresses rhetorical styles in writing essays as well as journal writing to increase fluency in writing. Students also learn to use the reader's guide to periodical literature and other research facilities in the library. Finally, English structures particularly problematical for non-native speakers are addressed, including verb tense choice, verb form, and article usage. Prerequisite: P grade in ENGL 098, MTELP score 70 or more, TOEFL score 500 or more, or instructor permission.
