The College Preparation course is the highest Noncredit ESL level designed for students who wish to prepare for transition into various academic programs at the college level. This course reinforces and builds on students’ English language skills to meet the academic expectations of college courses. Students are introduced to basic elements of an academic course: understanding the syllabus, note-taking, participating in discussion, interpreting written texts, composing essays, and making presentations. Students practice these academic skills in a supportive language-learning community. If taken in sequence with NESL 018, the successful completion of this course earns the Certificate of Competency in English for College Preparation and prepares students for direct entry to Rio Hondo College’s Credit English Program.
