I’ve been an adjunct instructor in Marian's Adult Programs (MAP) since it began in 1999, and I’m always amazed at the number of students who wait to take their English classes until the end of their degree programs. Granted, students are not required to take English courses at any particular time, and English has been a course that strikes terror in the hearts of even the strongest of students.
In years past, MAP’s English classes required students to take in-person classes two nights a week and manage several hours for completion of class assignments. The good news, is that MAP English classes are now offered 100% online, giving students more flexibility to juggle home, work, and school responsibilities.
Let’s consider the multiple benefits of taking those classes at the beginning of your course of study.
So, do the benefits of early English study outweigh the perceived inconveniences? I believe they do, and many students would agree. Think about this when planning your academic course of study and choose English early in your time at MAP.
