Designed for students whose primary language is other than English, this course presents industry-related basic reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. The emphasis is on high-frequency vocabulary (basic sight words) and phonics; refining oral and written production; assists with listening skills for enhanced job productivity; and increasing the control of the English sound system to minimize on-the-job miscommunication or misinterpretation due to foreign accent. This is the first class in our sequence of “Everyday English” language instruction.
