Academic English Grammar and Writing for Multilingual Learners

Academic English Grammar and Writing for Multilingual Learners is a co-curricular course offered by the Student Learning Commons (SLC) and has been carefully designed to help you succeed as a multilingual learner of English. 

The course combines grammar for academic purposes, critical thinking, and academic writing for university. The syllabus focuses on developing an appropriate academic voice to help you express yourself correctly and appropriately in academic writing as a member of the SFU academic community.  Students will do regular in-class writing, learn how to develop a critical stance, and write a research paper  and a give a presentation.

The course is not formally graded, but you will complete several reading and writing tasks, all of which will be graded and used to provide personalized feedback. Open to both undergraduate and graduate students.

The required workbook is Grammar for Academic Purposes by Steve Marshall. Students have the option of purchasing the online version ($23.95) or the book ($36.00 at the bookstore)
