English for uni workshops
There are so many ways to build your language and communications skills while you study. Join our learning community by attending workshops throughout the year.
Topics are divided into three main areas:
- Grammar and sentence structure
- Speaking and presenting
- Writing and ideas
No need to book; just arrive 5 minutes before sessions start.
New four-week workshop series begins Monday 20 May.
|Writing for uni||Mondays||11.30 pm - 12.30pm||80.3.17|
|Strengthening sentences||Mondays||12.30 pm - 1.30pm||80.3.17|
|Grammar studio||Wednesdays||12.30 am - 1.30 pm||80.3.17|
|Time for a conversation!||Fridays||12.30 - 1.30 am||80.3.17|
Learn about sentence types and how to clarify meaning at the sentence level. The workshops provide a general introduction to basic sentence structure. Each workshop builds on the previous one, so it is important to attend all three sessions. The focus is on how sentence combinations can be used to achieve greater grammatical accuracy and flexibility in writing.
Grammar studio provides an opportunity for you to improve your understanding of English grammar and sentence structure so that you can proofread your own work. Each week you participate with other students and a learning advisor in both giving and receiving feedback on a paragraph of your current writing.
Time for a conversation!
At Time for a conversation! there will be games and activities to practise listening and talking in English! Together we will cover a range of social exchanges including ordering food, taking part in conversation at parties, meeting and greeting friends and exploring the many challenges of conversing with others.
