ESL 010 is a low intermediate course that integrates computerized interactive tutorials to develop writing skills and teach communication through writing. This course reviews simple and advanced verb forms, adjectives and adverbs. Emphasis is on the sentence: word order, word choice, sentence combining and punctuation. Students will build upon their sentence skills to develop a unified paragraph of at least 75 words in length utilizing topic sentences. This is a required course for students who have successfully completed ESL 006 or have an appropriate score on the placement test. This precollege level course cannot be used to fulfill a degree requirement nor is it calculated in a student's Grade Point Average (GPA); however, the credits billed will be applied towards a student's financial aid enrollment status and enrollment status reported to the National Student Clearinghouse.
