    Description

    B2 - C1 Writing & Grammar Skills: Revision for English Academic Texts is a challenging and interactive workshop-style course for all students across the university with an upper-intermediate to advanced level of English (B2-C1). This course is ideal for students who would like to develop their understanding and confidence in using grammar for written assignments. Throughout the course we will explore and review key areas of grammar (and vocabulary) in context in order to gain a better idea about what language to use in different kinds of academic writing.

    Evaluation: Regular attendance and active participation is required to pass this course, as is the successful completion of all 4 formal written assignments.

    1. Combining sentences to write a unified text
    2. Write a short text comparing and contrasting information
    3. Write a description of a process
    4. Write an academic essay including extended definitions
    Training objectives

    The main areas of focus on this course include: review of English sentence structure; nouns and adjectives; verbs and adverbs; comparing and contrasting information; using more complex noun phrases; using the passive when describing processes; defining terms and concepts using relative clauses and key defining language; expressing degrees of certainty with modal verbs; sourcing ideas and information with a greater range of reporting verbs; summarising and paraphrasing; and more according to students' needs. Along the way you will also be encouraged to develop your critical thinking skills and to express your ideas more effectively and efficiently across a range of academic disciplines.
