Brief Course Description
Students will be able to build useful, communication skills in English in the United States through exploration and reflection of everyday readings and experiences. The class will be enriched by students’ own thoughts, traditions and cultures. Then they will be able to compare and contrast them with the North American customs, language and culture.
