A short description of the course
I often hear students’ complaints that they cannot or do not know how to write a text, for example, an essay, in English. They complain not to have any ideas or do not know how to present the ideas they might have in writing. This course is aimed at improving students’ essay-writing skills.
We will learn effective writing techniques, such as brainstorming, free-writing as well as some other ways. We will also discuss the structure of a good essay – how to construct a topic sentence, write a good introduction, present arguments in a text, what the different ways of concluding an essay might be.
How are we going to learn to write? By writing. You will have much practice, write and rewrite your own texts until we are both satisfied with them. You will analyse other students’ essays and give feedback to your friends as well as get individual feedback for each text from me.
