Taking an ESL class first will help you feel more comfortable when taking your English class. It can help you understand assignments better and lead to an improved learning experience.
It is also recommended you meet with a Counselor to discuss your placement and ask any questions you have about taking classes at Chaffey College.
Regardless of which English class you choose, please consider using these student support services – all of them will improve your chances of success in the class:
|Success Center – Tutors provide help on writing at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to drafting to final review.|
|English Faculty Office Hours – Find out what times your instructors hold office hours and make use of them by dropping in with questions or requests for help.|
|Library – Use the research services or study areas available in the campus library.|
|Your English class may have a PAL (Peer-Assistants for Learning) or SI Leader (Supplemental Instruction) so attend their sessions if available.|
