The course is designed to help learners of English to improve their written skills with a focus on writings related to Academia. We give you the opportunity to implement what you have learned by submitting assigned papers and giving you valuable feedback on how to improve.


The objective of the course is not to assist you by correcting your paper but by teaching you how to improve your overall skills that will stay with you long after the course has finished.


Course content: • Academic writing structures: use of passive voice • Nominalization, cohesion and coherence • Argumentation, paragraphing and punctuation • Conclusions and References • Written assignments to be submitted by candidates: o Letter of introduction o Essay o Report o Proposal


Activities and tasks set out by teaching staff: candidates will produce four different writings, each of which will be submitted for revision on two separate occasions; the first time to obtain general corrections and suggestions and a second revision of their edited version once the candidates have applied the original correction criteria. Deadlines for submitting written material will be strict and no exceptions will be made. Candidates will be provided with the exact timetable.
