English Language Support and Online Workshops
If English is not your first language (whether you’re a Home, EU, International or Distance Learning student), support is available from a team of Academic English tutors based in the International Academy. As language specialists we can advise on points of grammar, word choice, style, source use and (in the case of oral assessments) pronunciation that will help you improve your academic performance. Join the Academic English Language Skills canvas course https://canvas.wlv.ac.uk/enroll/6AHT8E (it’s free!) to access our online resources and sign up for an online 1to1English tutorial.
Academic English Language Workshops
The International Academy are offering a series of ‘Improving your Academic English’ online workshops, hosted via BigBlueButton (BBB) on the Academic English Language Skills canvas course https://canvas.wlv.ac.uk/enroll/6AHT8E.
The workshops (programme below) are designed for students who are users of English as an Additional Language (both International and Home) and who are not already receiving similar sessions as part of their degree course.
If you’re interested in joining the workshops, please enrol as soon as possible in the Academic English Language Skills canvas course https://canvas.wlv.ac.uk/enroll/6AHT8E so that you can receive our BBB conference invitations, which will go out on Friday afternoons. If you have any questions about the workshops, contact Carol Bailey (email@example.com).
