New ESL Courses
Two courses — Effective Presentations and Advanced
Academic and Professional Writing — have been added
to the spring English as a Second Language schedule.
Effective Presentations is the third in the sequence of
Intermediate and Advanced Listening/Speaking courses
already offered. In this new, high-advanced course,
students will perfect their language skills to lead and
manage discussions, argue effectively and make formal
presentations in demanding professional and university
environments. Readings and video encourage thoughtful
analysis and expand the students' cultural awareness.
Formal presentations are videotaped for review. Language
lab practice is available. The prerequisite is 492.072 or
an appropriate score on the placement exam given on the
first night of class.
Students in Advanced Academic and Professional Writing
will read and analyze the content, structure and style of a
wide range of professional and academic writing in order to
prepare their own articles, reports, critiques and
proposals. Through peer review and revision, students
produce a portfolio of carefully written professional and
academic papers. Optional language lab practice is
available. The prerequisite is 492.077 or an appropriate
score on the placement exam given on the first night of
Registration continues through Jan. 18. Tuition is
$795 per course; JHU employees and their spouses are
eligible for tuition remission through their Benefits
