ESL 151 High Advanced Reading


2 credit hours

This course is designed for students who are about to embark upon a college education in the United States. The readings are eclectic. They include selections featuring science, the arts and humanities, history, and other social sciences, and they are complete with extensive vocabulary work and discussion activities. Students enrolling in this course should expect the readings to be as varied and unexpected as those assigned by university professors on a daily basis for discussion and elaboration. In addition to extensive vocabulary work, the course includes timed readings for enhanced reading speed and comprehension, and daily work with paraphrase and discussion skills. The classroom resembles a university classroom. The course is founded on this principle: that the secret to learning how to read is to read voluminously.
