Introductory English helps students with everyday real-world English tasks. This class is focused on listening and speaking skills; however, reading and writing skills are also developed. Although this is an introductory class, students must have a basic level of English as determined by a recognized placement test. This class will move a high-beginner to an intermediate level of language proficiency.
Intermediate English will build strong communicative language skills by integrating reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar. Students will develop their language skills with activities that simulate real-world interactions – discussing opinions, participating in small talk, finding main ideas, and writing summaries. This course is designed to move students toward the more formal advanced academic English of the next course: EAP 50.0 University Preparation.
Academic Preparation introduces students to academic English with authentic post-secondary activities. Reading and writing skills are the main focus although listening and speaking are also developed through note-taking, presentations, and discussion groups. Students will apply and expand on these skills in the next level of study EAP 60.0.
Level 4 is offered through three channels: University Bridging, Academic Success or, Graduate Bridging. University Bridging enrolls students in an undergraduate academic class for credit concurrently with an English language class. Academic Success familiarizes students with the academic formality and expectations of post-secondary studies. Graduate Bridging enrolls students in a non-credit graduate preparatory class concurrently with an English language class. Successful completion of Level 4 meets the U of S English proficiency requirement.
