Welcome to the ESL Lab
The ESL lab provides language learning support to students whose first language is not English. Depending on their English skills placement test score and class registration, students can enroll in either the Skills Lab or the Writing Seminar, labs which have distinct instructional methods and work requirements.
In the beginning and intermediate Skills Lab—ESL 341L, ESL 330L, ESL 320L, ESL 312L, and ESL 310L—students practice all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing), using a highly effective computer software program which allows them to listen for comprehension, record their voice for pronunciation check, practice reading comprehension, and learn various grammar functions to improve writing.
In the higher level ESL 302L and ESL 91L Writing Seminar, students benefit from individualized help with English writing and reading skills through weekly essay and summary assignments which are reviewed by ESL lab instructors on a one-on-one basis. These labs provide intensive support which supplements the instruction students receive in their ESL 302 and ESL 91 composition classes.
