Grammar [3 credits]

This course is obligatory for students who want to follow Writing 1. It lays the foundation for the writing process, as it were. By means of interactive lectures and practical weekly assignments we will look at the most tricky parts of English grammar, especially for Dutch speakers. You will practise your skills by means of computer-based exercises that will give you feedback on your performance and tell you what aspects to improve. Because this course prepares for the Academic Writing course, we will pay special attention to the challenges of the grammar of formal English. At the end of the course, you will be aware of the most important pitfalls and you will be able to avoid these in your own writing production.
