Good writing comes from good process. Good process comes from good skills. In this course, you will look at the academic requirements needed to improve summarizing and paraphrasing. You will also learn to read with a researcher's mind.
These skills will help you research better and communicate large amounts of information in a clear, direct way.
The material is taken from well-known university writing labs, and is organized and taught for students who don't have English as a first language, but want to attend an English program.
This is also for native English speakers, who may want to attend a higher education institution, and who want to refresh or update their academic skills for the best chance at success.
Learning to judge the value of information, reading without knowing all vocabulary, and communicating in a clear, simple manner is what this course is all about.
This is one part from the 'Necessary Steps and Concepts for a Research Essay', so if you need these skills in relation to an essay, you may want to purchase the full course.
I have been involved in the English Language Learning industry for nearly twenty years working in three different countries. My experience teaching thousands of students from all over the world has led me to develop lessons that impact those needing to improve specific skills, or their ability in general.
As a former IELTS Examiner I understand the needed approaches for standardized tests, and with my deep knowledge of academics, I can help students connect foundational rules to student understanding.
Improving in English means different things to different people. I hope my lessons help you along the path to success.
