This glossary is for those students who have had formal English education in their countries but who have also enrolled in advanced level English continuing education classes in the U.S. These are the types of ESL students who can communicate in writing on an advanced level, but may still have some comprehension issues on an intermediate to advanced level.
In other words, this glossary is not for students who have a basic or a beginner’s understanding of English grammar and American writing. It is for international students who will progress to the next semester as an advanced-level student, but not for students who will progress from beginning to intermediate-level.
