What is an error in English?
The concept of language errors is a fuzzy one. I’ll leave to linguists the technical definitions. Here we’re concerned only with deviations from the
standard use of English as judged by sophisticated users such as professional writers, editors, teachers, and literate executives and personnel officers. The
aim of this site is to help you avoid low grades, lost employment opportunities, lost business, and titters of amusement at the way you write or speak.
Once admitted, students are required to take the EPT at their earliest opportunity. The test must be taken before enrollment in any classes at the CSU. Students will receive necessary information and registration materials by mail, usually from the admission office of the campus they plan to attend. Students may take the EPT only once and there is a nominal fee. The test is offered on all CSU campuses a few times a year.
