Inhalte, Lernergebnisse und Voraussetzungen


In this course students write and revise essays of various genres including description, evaluation, explanation, argument and analysis, while learning how to evaluate and interpret written texts of others in regular workshop sessions. Sample essays from previous semesters can be found at


After completion of this module, students have improved their ability to communicate clearly and powerfully in formal written English, become familiar with some common forms of expository writing, increased academic, professional and everyday vocabulary, developed regular habits to continue this learning process, and generally have increased their enjoyment of writing. In addition, students can understand formal texts with increased ease, summarize information from different written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation; they can express themselves spontaneously very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.

Lern- und Lehrmethoden

In this workshop-style course we explore a range of topics through short readings and essay-length composition writing. Techniques for evaluating ones own writing will be practiced, with opportunities to revise drafts. Oral and written peer evaluations will form a regular component of the class sessions including use of an online peer forum and online instructor feedback.


You need to bring a portable computer (with a fully charged battery, if possible!) to all class meetings.
