This week at EC Fredonia, students experienced a plethora of approaches to learning English in a collegiate setting. On Monday, many gathered to observe the Memorial Day holiday and attend related festivities. Tuesday, students used their senses to predict and speculate about texts. They wrote arguments, gave their opinions and explored the library’s newspaper archives.
Professional Development courses were also attended by EC students who experienced computer tutorials by a certified instructor. These students will leave EC with a certificate in their area of PDC as an added bonus to their EC certificate! Students also studied sociology this week and got an in-depth look at the traditions of Amish culture. English learners are encouraged to explore the rich culture of the SUNY Fredonia area and visit an Amish community to learn more! Excursions are often organized by the international department and are open to all students.
