Workshop Description


This course is designed for all who have good English but feel that they need to improve their style and vocabulary in the academic context. Participants will receive feedback on their writing and will have the opportunity to try out their presentations in class. The focus will be on style, vocabulary and grammar. In addition we will look at websites which can be used in self-study afterwards. We will ask you to submit a sample of your writing and/or the outline of your talk at least two weeks before the beginning of the course.

Minimum level for participation is B1. This class will dominantly address candidates from the Natural Sciences.
