Bridging English as a Second Language (Standard)
This course is for non-native speakers who are able to function well in high school classes where all instruction is in English, but who must still refine and practice their English pronunciation, fluency, grammar, idioms, and writing. This course is designed to more fully prepare students for the threshold college admissions standard of 80 or above IBT TOEFL. Admission and release from this course depend not only upon language proficiency but also upon academic ability and goals and will be determined by the department chair.
ESL level placement is determined by the department placement test score or equivalent IBT TOEFL score and departmental approval.
