March – June

Welcome to Integrative English. This course has two goals. The first is to help
students feel more comfortable in English speaking situations. The second is
to provide students with some practical English that they could use outside
the classroom if needed. We will meet twice a week, for a total of 3 hours
per week. The class will use a combination of textbook, in-class activities
(projects) and some internet/computer tasks.
