This course, intended for non-native speakers of English, focuses on refining academic reading skills with an emphasis on speed, vocabulary development, and analytical comprehension. It also includes practice in research and synthesizing skills and extensive writing based on critical analysis of readings at the Advanced-Low level.

In this class, we work on reading by working on vocabulary, reading faster, making inferences and analyzing reading passages.  We will integrate sources and research into our analyses.
