Verbal Skills and ESL Classes

Verbal Skills Classes meet for two hours each day, Monday-Thursday. The Verbal Skills courses focus on the reading, writing, and critical thinking needed for college-level work. Topics from across the university curriculum are included. 

ESL Classes meet for three hours each day. They are designed to increase English fluency across the four language skills areas: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Special attention is paid to reading comprehension, written composition, and critical thinking at the college level. 


All classes have tutors who attend every session. Individual tutoring is also scheduled to help students improve overall academic performance.
