Academic English sessions

Improve your academic vocabulary and grammar structures

Approximately 2000 headwords form the basis of all language use. You will know these word families which cover 80% of the vocabulary used in texts. There are, however, a further 570 word families which form part of academic vocabulary, contributing a further 10% of the vocabulary you will need for your academic study.

In this series of workshops we focus on:

  • Examples of grammar structures which are relevant in academic contexts only.
  • Key nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and expressions which are commonly used in academic contexts.

Please note that different material will be used in each 2-hour session.
