Absolutely—ESL students are welcome in the Reading Writing Center! ESL students may register for an ENGLB class at any time during their studies at CRC, but they should realize that the ESL Department also offers several great ESL skills labs. If students are unsure which lab to enroll in, they should talk with the staff in the ESL/Foreign Language Lab (LRC-221), the Reading Writing Center at the main CRC campus (LRC-203), or the Reading Writing Center at EGC (EGA-204) to determine which English lab might be best for their learning situation.
Possibly. There are eight ENGLB classes (ENGLB 70, 72, 73, 75, 76, 77, 78, and 299). The College Admissions office allows students to take each ENGLB class for up to one unit. The number of times a student can take an ENGLB class, then, depends on how many units the student registers for and how many hours he/she completes. For example, if a student enrolls in ENGLB 70 for 1 unit and completes the required number of hours in the lab, at the end of the semester that student will receive 1 unit and will not be able to re-enroll in ENLGB 70. However, if a student enrolls in ENGLB 70 for .5 unit and completes the required number of hours in the lab, at the end of the semester that student will receive .5 unit in the lab and will be able to re-enroll in ENGLB 70 for another .5 unit if desired.
No. Enrollment in an ENGLB class is not automatic and is not related to enrollment in any other class.
During the fall and spring semesters, many English professors work in the RWC from one to four hours per week. Instructional assistants (IAs) are on duty most hours the RWC is open. In addition to assisting students with their work, the IAs run the lab and take care of other lab matters: questions on lab procedures, trouble with a computer, and so on.
By checking the schedule, students can find out if and when their professors work in the RWC. This schedule changes every semester.
No appointments are necessary. As long as students are enrolled at the college, they are free to come to the lab any time during the hours of operation.
Grammar resources and reading modules will be available for all students who enroll in an ENGLB course, but students can also find grammar information/exercises online. Our Library is also an excellent resource for research, writing, and citation help.
