This course is designed to further improve the students’ mastery of the English language. Drills of language skills are reviewed and reinforced. Particular attention is focused on the functions of words in various types of sentences, the use of dialogue, and the nuances of argument and counter-argument. This will aid the students to develop more interesting sentences in their narrative, argumentative, and informative/explanatory compositions. Students are placed according to ability.
