  1. ESOL: Develop your writing through grammar (advanced)
    Course start date:  Wed 1 Feb 2023

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    How will you develop your writing? One way is to think about how your writing affects the reader. Grammatical features play a significant role in creating these effects. On this course, you will explore how different grammatical forms can be used to create different impressions on reader and influence them. For example, how modal verbs can express different levels of assertiveness or how information can be made as clear as possible by using certain types of clauses and conjunctions. By becoming aware of how to use grammar to change meaning, your writing will become more sophisticated and impacting.

    You need to do a pre-course assessment face-to-face or online. Contact / (telephone temporarily unavailable) or click the Start Assessment button on this page. Log on with your email address (not name).
