English V

Required of most postgraduates, English V focuses primarily on honing the student's general language skills in preparation for the verbal sections of the College Board Exam (SAT), writing a research paper, and application of technology to the research/writing process. The student prepares for the College Boards in a variety of ways: (1) By practicing effective test-taking strategies; (2) By enhancing his working vocabulary using proven methods of vocabulary acquisition; (3) By working with reading comprehension and sentence completion exercises similar to those found on the actual test; (4) By taking sample SAT examinations; (5) By studying video tapes which offer practice questions and suggested methods of preparation; (6) By reading several books during the term to further enhance their reading skills for the critical reading section; (7) By using the computer resources available on software and the Internet.
