|Tue 13 May||11:15 - 13:15||Department of Engineering, Language Unit Meeting Room||Sheila Dodds|
Format: Class work and individual study
- Participants must be Non-native speakers
- To help students revise and extend their understanding of how to use verbs in both written and spoken English.
Topics covered: Following on from the recent Verbs (1) workshop, we will be looking at more advanced conditional and subjunctive structures, and also at some modal verbs. There will be both spoken and written practice. As before, it will not be possible to cover these topics comprehensively, and so we will be focusing on some of the areas that most often cause students difficulty. Students are therefore encouraged to write in advance to Sheila Dodds (smd48) if they have any specific areas or problems which they would like to be addressed.
