This is a three-hour non-credited English course offered to students who score poorly (i.e. below 50%) on the placement test. Since the major concern of this course is to improve the students’ proficiency before starting their ordinary university English basic courses and major courses taught in English, special emphasis has been placed on enhancing the students’ ability to effectively acquire the four language skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Specifically, the course attempts to ensure an academically acceptable performance on the part of the students at the level of the English basic courses. Moreover, the course aims at expanding students’ vocabulary needed for various tasks.
