About the Course
LANG 100. Development English is a preparatory or introductory course for mainstream classes in English. The course provides an intense review of the basic elements of English usage and focuses on developing and strengthening the English language skills acquired by the students to help them manage college-level work. These objectives are achieved by fostering close study and appreciation of texts, enhancing reading and writing skills useful in academic settings, and improving speaking skills for a variety of purposes and audiences. Emphasis is placed on the basic mechanical and structural elements of the writing process particularly in composing cause and effect essays, comparison and contrast essays, and process essays. By reinforcing the students’ foundations on the language skills, the students will learn the importance of these in producing balanced and effective comprehensive texts that are uniquely theirs.
LANG 115. This course aims to further enhance the student’s acquired academic skills in their low beginner ESL courses. The topics shall reinforce the English language’s functionality both in academic and social contexts. The tasks are designed to address the students’ interests or areas for improvement. Furthermore, the program enriches the students’ knowledge in the four core skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening); and strengthen their academic writing skills. The Integrated Skills subject offers ample opportunities for the students to express their ideas orally and in writing. The reading and writing exercises become points for oral discussion to reinforce public speaking skills in presentations. In addition, this course seeks to develop both fluency and accuracy in written and oral communication. The topics to be covered are relevant, motivating and challenging. The College Writing subject aims to help students develop skills in research, grammatical and syntactical structures. They shall be given writing tasks that will tackle different writing techniques and forms. Some readings and types of literature shall also be incorporated in the subject matter to help improve students’ reading comprehension, and research skills in summarizing and paraphrasing. Literature will also help widen students’ vocabulary or word bank.
LANG 120 Literature: Critical Analysis is designed to equip students with communicative competence that they need to appreciate different genres of literature. The course also includes an overview of different literary critical theories for students to gain appetite in evaluating and critiquing literary pieces. In addition, the students are trained to observe the writing process as they develop their ideas resulting to clear and coherent literary responses. The students will also engage in various speaking activities like small group and class discussions, oral reports, and creative presentations such as delivering monologues
LANG 120 Writing. Writing and Research aims for a thorough reinforcement and upgrade of academic skills students have acquired in LANG 115/ESL 2.
