ADTIS In-Sessional - Grammar Focus - Modals Wed 21 Oct 2020   17:00 Finished

The most significant grammar mistakes that foreign students make are usually those that greatly change the meaning of the sentence. Modals, such as can or would, are often used to indicate the position of the writer in academic writing, so their inaccurate use can easily give a very different meaning from that intended. For this workshop, students will first watch a video and complete some exercises on Moodle. In the real-time webinar, students can ask questions and discuss areas of difficulty.

ADTIS In-Sessional - Presentation Skills Thu 22 Oct 2020   13:00 Finished

The most common way for students to share their work with their colleagues is via presentations, using a variety of techniques and methods. This webinar, which dovetails with the Presentation Skills Practice workshop on 18 November, will introduce some ways in which you can make your work come across as coherent and effective.

ADTIS In-Sessional - Academic Writing Style Wed 28 Oct 2020   17:00 [Places]

Even if the writing of foreign students is grammatically correct and coherent, it can sometimes have an undesired impact on the reader because it is written in the wrong style. This webinar will give some guidance on what is usually considered good academic style. Students will then be asked to complete some exercises on Moodle.

ADTIS In-Sessional - Grammar focus: Prepositions Thu 29 Oct 2020   13:00 [Places]

One of the key areas in which non-native speakers of English have difficulty attaining native-level accuracy is in the use of prepositions. Although this webinar does not pretend to give students all the answers, it will provide a number of ways to conceptualise the use of prepositions and hopefully clarify this complex area of grammar. Students will then be asked to complete some exercises online.
