Our 5th Annual Student Learning Commons' Undergraduate Writing Contest opens on Nov 29, 2021. If you have submitted a paper for an SFU undergraduate course in 2021, you may be eligible to enter and win cash prizes! New this year is the Plurilingual prize that celebrates diverse, multilingual approaches to writing that pushes the envelope of traditional academic writing.
In Common: The SLC blog
In these Lost in Translation posts you can expect to read about common words and phrases that result in interesting (and sometimes funny) translations when we try to explain them in English.
Contributions to this series come from across the SLC and we also welcome submissions from the wider university community.
Our third post features Cantonese, one of the most difficult languages to learn for non-native speakers, but it is one of the dialects that sounds the closest to ancient Chinese.
Looking for an icebreaker for your next event? Interested in promoting self-reflection opportunities? Curious about the relationship between mistakes or failure and resiliency?
This is the toolkit for you!
[Note: Excellent mistakes not included!]
