The English as a Second Language (ESL) course of study at Walla Walla College is designed to equip non-native speakers of English to prepare for academic work on the college or university level. The curriculum is based on a Christian view of humankind, recognizing a special endowment for language learning. It views language as primarily a tool for human communication in which meanings are found in the context. It considers effective language learning to be aided by teacher-directed activities or tasks in which learners experience a variety of cognitive demands. It prepares learners to communicate in English with acceptable accuracy, fluency, and appropriacy in all areas listening and speaking as well as reading and writing. It also will equip them to become independent learners of the language. Because culture is a basic part of all language learning, the program will also help the learners to understand American culture as an integral part of their language-learning experience.
 
ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT
The academic advisement for ALL ESL students will be assigned to the ESL program no matter what the student's major is. The ESL advisor will consult with the ESL Advisory Committee and the academic department involved in order to design a course that will best aid the student in reaching his or her academic goals. All ESL students will continue to be advised by the academic advisor in the ESL program until such time as they have successfully completed College Writing 121 with at least a C.
