The Reading/Writing 3 class is designed for learners who are able to read and understand paragraphs containing more complex statements, e.g. those containing coordinating and subordinating conjunctions, and who have at least a basic understanding of the parts of speech. Students at this level are able to write paragraphs, notes and informal letters in English. Standard punctuation, spelling and sentence structure are reinforced. Activities used to improve reading and writing skills at this level include reading more complex stories and practice writing formal vs. informal letters, e-mails, and short compositions. Students also develop their ability to edit their own texts through process writing. Instructors may place a stronger emphasis on reading or writing based on the interest and needs of the students enrolled.
