About the English for Multilingual Students (EngM) Program

The new English for Multilingual Students (EngM) courses at Ventura College offers reading and writing classes to prepare students for vocational or transferable college coursework.  EngM prepares students to understand textbooks, write essays and learn academic and workplace readiness skills.
Who should take EngM courses?
EngM is open to all native and non-native speakers of English. Students who take EngM courses find they score higher on the English assessment required for college and transfer-level English classes.  Native English speakers who struggle with grammar have also found that EngM builds their English confidence. EngM courses also serve advanced ESL students who are planning to further their education.
