ESL Workshop- Academic Writing with Clarity
Clear writers create concrete actors and actions.
The sentences we write are always clear to us, but are they clear to our readers? In this workshop, we explore five common sentence constructions that most readers find difficult to understand. We discuss ways to improve those types of sentences and why it is important to express actions in verbs in order to avoid abstract language
Writing with Clarity
Writing clearly in English is a challenge for native and non-native writers alike. What is it in a sentence that makes readers judge it as complex and unclear or as direct and easily understood? What general principles can we follow that will enable us to revise a sentence so that readers will judge it as clear and concise? These are the questions we will explore throughout these workshops.
