Focus on Writing
Levels 7-10
This 12-week intensive program consists of three classes daily. The first class focuses on understanding and effectively using vocabulary (including collocations, idioms, register, discourse and formality). The second class will concentrate on the structure, mechanics, style and tone of sentences. Finally, the third class will illuminate how to write various academic, business, professional, and functional compositions. In addition to these practical objectives, this class will show students how to put themselves in the correct mindset to write, how to plan to write as well as how to implement editing and revision strategies. Creativity, flexibility and risk-taking will also be emphasized.
