The workshop will focus on the skills needed for identifying main ideas, using formal vs. informal vocabulary, and applying rhetorical devices. Various vocabulary-building strategies will be tried and multiple text types reviewed. Group tasks and peer review will also give participants the chance to learn from each other. By the end of this workshop, students will be able to approach their studies better equipped with new strategies for producing academic texts and using formal and informal register in English.
