Middlesex University Dubai's Centre for Academic Success offer a range of English Language Booster Sessions for students enroling on our IFP and Undergraduate Programmes this September. The workshops provide students with the opportunity to enrich their studies ahead of starting classes and to enhance their academic success at University.
Some of the most frequent errors made in English language are those of subject-verb agreement. This workshop will introduce students to the basic rules applicable to subject-verb agreement, which will be further revised through worksheets and practical exercises.
The importance of punctuation in academic writing will be considered, focusing on those most commonly used (comma, semi-colon, colon and apostrophe). The workshop also introduces basic rules for singular/plural agreement and some spelling conventions for plurals.
At University, students are encouraged to use a variety of sentence structures in order to demonstrate complexity within their writing. The various types of sentence structures as well as the commonly made errors in sentence construction will be reviewed and practiced in this workshop.
Students will be introduced to various techniques for effective paragraphing, which is the key to writing successfully at University. You will learn how to construct a paragraph using PEE format, understand the importance of cohesion and connectives, and apply this theory in a practical manner.
Oral skills are assessed frequently at University, with individual or group presentations forming summative assessments in many courses. In this workshop you will learn how to structure and deliver an oral presentation and how to deliver it clearly and with confidence.
