KnowHow Academic English Classes

These classes are part of the KnowHow programme of workshops designed to help you succeed in your studies. KnowHow Academic English classes are open to all students and staff and aim to help you improve your use of academic English.

Our classes focus on a range of general academic language skills and supplement the ELC's discipline-specific Academic Language & Skills classes.  Each session is offered as part of a longer course, and you are welcome to attend the whole course or only those sessions of most interest to you. Students who attend at least 75% of a KnowHow Academic English course will be eligible to receive a Certificate of Participation.

What to expect

These courses are delivered online via Microsoft Teams and you will receive a Team code when you register.  To get the best experience and full access to the course materials, you should join the team before attending the first session. Our classes are intereactive and will typically include the following kinds of activity:

  • Writing sentences or a short paragraph
  • Participating in a discussion
  • Matching or ranking activities
  • Asking questions to the tutor
