    Default Re: poor performance in english language in undergraduates

    The reasons vary from country to country, but often undergraduates have language training, but lack the spec`ific skills for university work. They might find listening to hour-long lectures something they have never done before and may lack training in skills like writing extended essays in an academic style.
