LING 3210-400E, English for Academic Purposes--3 Credits. The course, begins February 22 through Continuing Education.  LING 3210 is intended to help international students further advance their English language skills in a friendly supportive setting. It’s particularly good for those who need a boost, including first year students!  Currently, there are only four enrollees. The course will continue regardless, but it would be good to give more students an opportunity to enroll. This course is particularly convenient for international students who may want to drop one of their current courses, but need to stay at or above 12 credits to satisfy student visa requirements. Be sure to remind students that there is an additional charge for Continuing Education courses.


Course Description:

This course is designed for undergraduate students for whom English is an additional language, this course develops academic English skills for university-level work.

Students improve grammatical accuracy, develop academic vocabulary, and expand critical thinking skills and metacognitive strategies. This course does not count toward the Linguistics major or minor. Recommended Restriction: This course is restricted to non-native English-speaking students.
