There are three Lower Level Liberal Studies courses designed for students whose first language is not English:
These courses require a placement test, which can be found at http://www.ryerson.ca/english/esl or by permission from Marju Toomsalu, EAL Programs Director (firstname.lastname@example.org; ext. 4196).
LNG 111, LNG 112 and LNG 113 are available to students who have been assessed as likely to benefit from intensive language and writing courses. Students for whom English is a second language and who are enrolled in programs that accept ESL courses for credit may take all three ESL courses, LNG 111, 112, and 113. However, a maximum of two credits only may be used towards their degree requirements.
There is one Lower Level Liberal Studies course designed for undergraduate students wishing to improve their writing skills: LNG 121, Language and Society. No Placement test is required for this course.
