ESL


ESL is short for English as a Second Language. ESL is used to describe English courses for international students who are not native English speakers. In ESL classes, students learn the English language by studying grammar, vocabulary and conversation. More importantly, you will practice your English grammar and vocabulary every day by writing essays and having conversations in the class and out in the city! https://www.adamscollege.edu




CMAR


CMAR means Conversation Management Accent Reduction. In this course, you will learn how to manage your conversations and then work on reducing your accents from your native tongue. You can read and write, but it is important to get your conversation nice and clear. Many students coming from other countries have a difficult time pronouncing some words and this can cause a mix up when talking with other people. For students looking for a future in academics, business and professional settings, it is critical to master the art of pronunciation. There are commonly used words that foreign speakers have a tough time saying and these are crucial to master. For example, try saying the word "ADVANCED". This is a frequently used word that is surprisingly easy to mispronounce.




Idioms


I never heard of Idioms. Is it important? Idioms are expressions used to describe a situation. What makes idioms so difficult for new English speakers is that the individual words mean something completely different when put together into a sentence. For example, let's take a look at this common idiom "rain cats and dogs" Each individual words are easy to understand. But what do animals have to do with the rain? What about "a bun in the oven" Is someone baking bread? No! This means that someone is pregnant! Using idioms in your everyday conversation will make you sound more natural and in command of the English language. However, be careful. Idioms are informal so there are places to use them and places to not use them.
