GPSC482 - English Grammar 1: Subject-verb agreement, verb tenses, articles, and voice

Do you want to perfect your writing in English, but have doubts about your grammar? Do you want to move your writing from functional closer to the level and style of a native speaker?

English Grammar 1 is the first in a set of two grammar workshops targeted toward non-native English-speaking graduate students at Concordia University. This workshop gives participants a solid foundation needed to move toward producing polished papers, reports, and theses at an advanced level. English Grammar 1 helps remedy some of the most persistent grammar problems that advanced learners of English face – namely, those related to subject-verb agreement, articles, choosing the right verb tense and the use of passive voice – and it supports students who want to become better writers.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Identify and solve some of the most common grammar problems non-native English-speaking graduate students face such as subject-verb agreement, articles, verb tense and passive voice.
2. Recognize and correct these grammar problems when they appear in texts.
3. Apply grammar-related specificities of English academic writing style in own writing.

Leaders Information

This workshop is led by Javier Ibarra-Isassi. Javier is a PhD candidate in Biology and his research is focused on answering the questions where organisms are in the world and why they are there. He has a soft spot for ants, so he chose these little creatures as the model system of his research. Before coming to Montreal, he completed his BSc in El Salvador and his MSc in Brazil. Javier has experience in publishing and peer-reviewing academic articles and presenting his research in international conferences. When not doing research, Javier is teaching, reading, or honing his cooking skills.
