CONTENT
As far as language learning goes, you are lucky not to be living in 1987. Unlike prior to the Internet, you now have a wealth of tools at your fingertips that can help you learn English and improve your writing. At this hands-on workshop, you will learn ways to find that word you’re looking for and check whether or not a phrase is idiomatic. We will first cover effective methods for doing Internet searches and find out about helpful features of English dictionaries. We will also look at other useful online resources such as language blogs, style guides, and corpora. The second part of the workshop will give you practice using these tools to find synonyms and alternate formulations and improve a piece of writing.

Target group
Bachelor’s and master’s level students

COMPETENCY GOALS
Students will

  • become aware of the many tools out there that can help them improve their writing;
  • practice using these tools to improve a piece of writing; and
  • put knowledge acquired into practice at both the sentence and text levels.
