Description

The concept of ‘publish or perish’ has become a reality in academia. Apart from allowing researchers to make an impact in their field, it is also an essential requirement to advance your career. Researchers put in months working on their research and then translating it into a manuscript, but grammatical errors can annoy editors and derail you on the path to publishing success. Being able to communicate effectively is a key academic, personal, and professional skill, and this simple course presents you with the building blocks to polish and enhance your language and writing abilities.

This well-paced program is designed for researchers whose first language is not English, or those who need guidance regarding the grammar, usage, and style of academic English. It offers clear and concise discussions on the basics of English grammar, including how to avoid critical grammatical errors while constructing sentences. Toward the end of this course, you will be able to master grammar concepts and confidently communicate your ideas and thoughts when writing a research proposal, an assignment, or an academic paper.
