This General English course provides a directed review of English language skills with an emphasis on the reinforcement and expansion of comprehension through practice in readings of approximately five hundred words in length. Although many of the readings are on familiar topics, they often present new or little-known information that will intrigue the students. Each unit features an activity that integrates writing with the development of reading skills. These guided writing activities are clearly related to the unit topics.
