English Language & Writing Courses

Early Fall Start offers special courses for students who want to improve their English language skills. There is also a course designed to help all students improve their writing abilities. 

The English language courses are designed to focus on improving your academic English skills so you can understand university texts, assignments and lectures, and can better participate in class discussions. Writing Ready, Learning Ready (English 108) helps prepare students for college-level writing assignments, enhancing the ability to read, write, think and pursue scholarly research at a university level.

Before registering for a course, international students should review the UW English language requirements, listed on the course pages.
