Advanced Grammar for
Self-Editing Workshop

apply apply

This course will help high-intermediate to advanced level non-native English speakers improve their ability to find and correct their own grammar and punctuation errors in academic or professional writing tasks. This 5-week course focuses on learning how to produce concise, clear, error-free writing. Review of advanced grammar concepts is combined with proofreading exercises and independent writing tasks that are designed to teach impoved self-editing skills.

In this course, students will:

  • Review grammar concepts that most frequently cause errors in non-native speaker writing
  • Identify and correct grammar errors in writing through editing and proofreading practice
  • Create a 'checklist' of their most frequent grammar errors for more effective self-monitoring and correction
  • Receive individualized feedback from experienced instructors in a small-group setting.
