Workshop: Top 10 grammar and language issues

Faculty of Humanities


Course / training

If you don’t have the time to take a complete English course, you’re welcome to come to the workshop ‘Top 10 grammar and language issues’ from the Academic Language Programme (ALP). We will discuss the most frequent errors in English texts written by speakers of Dutch. Rather than giving you an overview of English grammar, we will focus on well-known problems. In the workshop, we will give an explanation of 10 common errors, after which we will do a set of exercises with these issues. Finally, we will spend some time on recognizing errors in longer stretches of text; you will have the opportunity to check a text of your own at this point and ask the workshop leader for feedback. The workshop lasts 3.5 hours.
