Applied Writing Skills for English Language Learners

This course sup­ports upper-lev­el Eng­lish lan­guage learn­ers as they devel­op prac­ti­cal aca­d­e­m­ic writ­ing skills in Eng­lish. Lessons will focus on three dimen­sions of wrt­ing that are per­ti­nent to aca­d­e­m­ic con­texts: com­mon gram­mar items, styl­is­tic lan­guage choic­es, and applied writ­ing skills such as sum­ma­riz­ing and syn­the­siz­ing infor­ma­tion. Lan­guage items will be reviewed and ana­lyzed using real exam­ples of con­tem­po­rary and aca­d­e­m­ic texts. Stu­dents can apply these essen­tial Eng­lish writ­ing tools to aca­d­e­m­ic writ­ing tasks.
