Workshops for grammar and punctuations

Workshop series targeting at key grammatical structures and punctuation rules of academic English. If you are confused about key issues regarding grammar and punctuations used in research communications, attend the workshop series to clarify your confusions and gain practice. The sessions cover tricky issues with verb tenses used in research writing, key clauses and phrases of academic English, the confusing system of the English articles (a, an​, the, and zero article), connectors, comma, semicolon, colon, dashes, voices (passive and active), adjective clauses, vocabulary issues, etc. All these are essential to writing accurately.
