This course builds oral communication skills for students who speak English as an additional language. By building grammatical accuracy, pronunciation, fluency in speaking, and active listening skills, students gain self-confidence and improve their ability to participate in academic contexts and succeed in COMM 101  . This course offers students a safe, supportive space to reflect upon, discuss and develop strategies to overcome common challenges that most international and ESL/EAL students experience. This is a 1-3 variable credit course and students have the opportunity to work on and review assignments from other courses they are taking at Prairie State College.
