English as an Additional Language (EAL)

Academic Grammar and Writing for Multilingual Learners (EAL)

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

The workshop combines grammar for academic purposes, critical thinking, and academic writing for university. The content focuses on developing an appropriate academic voice to help you express yourself appropriately in academic writing as a member of the SFU academic community.  Students will complete several reading, writing, and grammar tasks, all of which will be used to provide personalized feedback.

Open to undergraduate students only.

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).
