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, assisting 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.
