ENG 110 and the Writing Center

Writing in English can be a big concern if your first language is not English. In this course the tutor will help you acquire strategies for writing in English and help you learn the expectations of American readers because the expectations for writing are often very different from one culture to another. Writing for the American university is often based on textbooks or other readings and one component of writing is noticing the details of those readings. Another component of this course is language acquisition. Because language acquisition is important to understanding the texts you are reading and writing, you and the tutor will use strategies to help you acquire a greater proficiency of English communication.
