ESL 6 is a non-credit, open enrollment course, which is designed for students who already have high intermediate reading and writing English skills. Students in ESL 6 integrate language functions and language forms with informational sources, necessary skills, and real world topics. Students can function independently in familiar personal and work situations, show very good control of grammar, and can read and interpret most authentic forms and materials they encounter in the world. Students often use creativity to produce language. Students address topics in ESL 6 that coincide with their learning goals: general, vocational, or academic.
