Focus on Writing - Free ESL Workshop Series: Winter 2018

Throughout the academic year, Dalhousie ESL offers free workshops to help students review and expand their knowledge of the English language. All Dalhousie students are invited to drop in for a different topic each week to develop speaking and listening skills for a variety of contexts and improve their academic writing through a focus on grammar. 

Focus on Writing (Mondays 4:30-6:30)

The Monday workshop focuses on the specific needs of students whose first language is not English. It is a review of all the building blocks of grammar to improve a student's writing on exams, assignments, and academic papers, and to help make the most out of other academic support on campus such as the Study Skills workshops, the Writing Centre, and writing classes. Each workshop is self-contained, so students can come to just a few, or come every Wednesday. The workshops will include explanation of rules and theory, as well as ample time for writing feedback by a qualified and experienced ESL instructor.
