Academic Writing in English
The intention of this course is to improve writing skills for academics and professionals who need to develop their ability to produce specialist academic texts in English. It is open to anyone having a good level of Standard English as well as some basic understanding of grammar and text construction.
Here the aim is to allow participants to find a better way of structuring their written documents and thus give each text more clarity and ease to the reading public. The overall focus will be on combining individual styles with the professional needs in such fields as: science, academia, medicine, reports and other writing forms. The goal is a readable document that has good grammar and an intellectual flow for a scholarly audience.
This course will engage in both the topic areas of the participants as well as gaining the individual ability to examine and learn to correct important texts. Many scientific, academic, medical and everyday professional skills will – each session – be worked with and discussed together
Vocabulary and Grammar
Since both of them are so critical to good academic writing, some class time will be spent on a grammar review, work with prepositions, adverbials and other necessary writer tools. How sentences are expected to work in a paragraph structure will be examined in your writing in order to help editing skills and revisions to strengthen each document.
