Classes are completely online. There are NO Zoom meetings.

 

I highly recommend that you also take the writing course ESL 2 for this level. The grammar class is specifically designed to improve the essays you create in the writing classes to help you get a better grade. I am teaching ESL 2 on campus Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30-12:35pm TBD.

 

Relationship Cure textbook

 

Text: John Gottman's The Relationship Cure

 

  • ASIN ‏ : ‎B004TIY64A

If you want to get a head start, purchase the book and read chapter 1.

Although the class is online, we have the same strategies as we do in the classroom.

 

We will read the book, use what we read to discuss parts of speech, grammatical structures, and more to improve your sentences and essays. You all have awesome college level brains, and we want to use proper English grammar to show that. I will provide lots of help via lectures, activities, and you can always email me questions :) Online tutoring is also available.

 

During the semester, we will do lots of activities in our discussion groups, view lectures and take 3 exams.

 

This class is pass/no pass. It is not graded because the focus isn't the grade, but rather the improvement of your writing. I find students who take this class with the writing class get better grades overall.

 

Your participation is super important in class, and I look forward to getting to know you online.
