ELL 2

Students in ELL 2 are working on expanding their vocabulary and further developing their reading, writing and speaking skills so that they can be more successful in all of their courses. A strong emphasis is put on learning how to write clear and effective paragraphs and compositions.

ELL 2 is in Period 3 in D204. We have a peer tutor in our class: Gabriel.
