Every year, thousands of students who are not native English speakers enroll in colleges in the United States. These are bright, talented students who have earned their places alongside their new fellow English-speaking counterparts.
Unfortunately, soon after their studies commence, many of them begin to encounter difficulties related to their command of the English language. While most can speak relatively well, with some grammatical and syntax errors, the level of scholarly writing that is expected in the classroom is just beyond them. They totally master the concepts and skills, but becoming a writer who can compete with fellow classmates in the production of essays and papers is quite another matter.
