ESL High Intermediate/Advanced: Writing & Grammar *Online*

If you have a good command of English, but find that your writing needs help, this is the class for you. We focus on vocabulary and word forms, grammar, punctuation and practice.  Verb tenses, sentence structure, paragraph building and essay development are all part of the curriculum. Students will have a lot of opportunities to practice expressing themselves in written English. In this class, all major forms of writing will be covered, including letters (business and personal), journals, essays and other forms that students find helpful. This class is great for any high intermediate or advanced student who wants to improve their written English and is especially recommended for students preparing for the TOEFL.
