ENGL 0: English Composition and Grammar

Self-paced Correspondence

ENGL 0 is a basic course in English that presupposes no previous study of either composition or grammar. Its purpose is to increase awareness of language, to provide skills necessary for effective writing, and to clarify common trouble spots in grammar and mechanics. The course is flexible enough to serve students just beginning high school, someone needing a college preparatory refresher course, or adults seeking a review of fundamental English for their own satisfaction.
