Why choose the Academic Writing course?

Students in higher eduation and academics often need to write clearly and persuasively in English as part of their studies or research. This usually represents a significant step up for most people, even when they are already fluent and confident using English in everyday situations. As a result, students require a more specialist course including dedicated one-on-one teacher time to achieve their required level. Lingu's Academic Writing course fulfills this need.

The course focuses on clarity, cohesion, style and flow, and uses real texts from participants' academic fields so that the skills learnt in class can immediately be applied to their studies and research. In addition to detailed text analysis, group discussion and writing exercises, participants get the opportunity to clarify any longstanding doubts and work on their own writing in one-to-one sessions with their teacher.

After just one course, students will elevate their English writing skills to the level required of them in academia!
