ESL 101 - U.S. Culture: Understanding and Negotiating a New Landscape (3)

This Jumpstart course is designed to help USF conditionally-admitted students in China improve their academic English and build their competence in understanding aspects of U.S. culture that are relevant for their cultural adjustment to living and studying in the U.S., and USF in particular. The orientation of the course will be to take a social-psychological view of life in society more broadly as the foundation for understanding and negotiating differences between the students' countries and U.S. culture.
