Statewide research shows that English language learners who graduated from a U.S. high school are at least twice as likely to complete transfer-level English if they enroll in the course directly rather than taking a stand-alone ESL class. However, those students often benefit from support in English language conventions and cultural context. To address this, colleges across California are designating specific sections of transfer-level English for ESL students. Learn about these programs at two colleges and strategies to address the writing and language needs of ESL writers in the transfer-level English classroom.
