AbstractThis study examines the usefulness of an adjunct course (Precourse) that was taught by a language teacher who accompanied her students to an undergraduate history course at the university level. Qualitative methods and quantitative measurements were employed to: (a) to assess the effectiveness of the Precourse on improving the participants' proficiency level, and (b) to examine the effect of such a course on improving the students' academic competence and performance. Special attention was paid to the influence of the first social and academic culture of the participants on their process of learning English as a second language.
