English Communication is a review course designed to refresh grammar and writing skills and to help students communicate more effectively. It explains how to avoid grammatical, spelling, punctuation, and other errors when writing sentences and paragraphs; how to write precisely and effectively; and how to improve one's image by using the right word in the right place, whether writing or speaking.

Understand others better, at work and in social situations
Learn more readily, both formally and informally, and with greater comprehension

Define and effectively use homonyms, synonyms, and antonyms
Define and correctly use words formed from familiar root words
Recognize prefixes and use them to change the meanings of words
