Adult Education and Diversity Programs: College English Skills
COLLEGE ENGLISH SKILLS (Formerly English 15)
Students who have taken the Cerritos College Assessment Test and placed in English 15 will enroll in a noncredit English class in the Adult Education Department.
Upon successful completion of noncredit Adult Education class, students will be able
to enroll in the next credit level of English (English 20).
This beginning course is designed for native English speakers already able to understand and speak the language. It is intended to reduce beginning writing students' fear and anxiety about writing. It develops writing fluency through written activities and assignments designed to teach and reinforce conventions to standard English. This course focuses on sentence structure and development and sentence combining. Students will work toward developing short paragraphs.
