This course is designed for non-native English-speaking students with advanced-mid proficiency in reading and writing as defined by the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines. The course focuses on improving students’ grammar usage, broadening their vocabulary, improving their academic writing, and enhancing their interpretive reading strategies. Through the use of a broad range of texts, students study the conventions of academic writing along with a review of grammar and prose mechanics. In this course we teach students to write in extended length about a variety of concrete and abstract topics, in the language functions of argument (supported opinion) and hypothesis, in formal register with significant precision and detail.
