This course provides an initial assessment of the students' English language foundation and brings their skills to a performance standard expected of Bachelors students beginning their program of study at HPI, and introduces them to the work ethic expected of them through the subsequent English courses. The students will strengthen their grasp of grammar, and further develop their listening, speaking, reading and critical thinking skills drawing on current topics and established texts in their academic field.

Actual course topics are determined by the needs analysis and skills assessment conducted at the beginning of the semester. A grammar assessment determines the grammar revision necessary to bring this fundamental to a level expected of an HPI student. Course content is modified to best assist the students in reaching a next level of fluency.

The number of participants is limited to best promote customization, effectively accommodate the needs of the students, and be most efficient in a limited 90-minute weekly course offering.
